Southern Ute Veterans share stories

Vietnam Veteran Rod Grove shared the history of the Southern Ute Veterans and their contributions to the military, while Raymond Baker spoke to the students about his service in the present-day Navy. Many students did not realize so many Southern Utes had fought for our country in different wars; nor did they realize how many navy vessels have been named after Native American tribes.
The Southern Ute Veterans Association was invited to speak to Sergeant Dan Cyr’s law enforcement class at Bayfield Middle School and Bayfield High School, Friday, May 11. Howard Richards Sr., Raymond Baker and Rod Grove spoke about their experiences in the military service.
