SSG. RYAN KNAUSS - THE WHOLE IN THE WORLD RE-VISITED (published 3-20-2022; article #308)


The first four articles today were either boring or very funny. This and the final, next, article are serious. I hope that you are still with me!

This article is my further commentary, to my 8/29/2021 article, “THE WHOLE IN THE WORLD (Published 8/29/21, Sunday).” I have seen the memorial before. Yesterday, I paused, to take two photographs. The memorial is near the northern entrance to Weigels Store #39, where we buy the cost of a brick of gold gasoline.

The Two Photographs


No further commentary from me is needed.


The above photograph catches the flag almost fully extended, by the wind, blowing from the west.


My 8/29/2021 article did not mention SSG. RYAN KNAUSS, by name. I state his name now. Our small community was still in shock, when I wrote that article. Folks are getting along, now, well enough – despite all the bad news that we see and hear.

Yesterday, at one errand, I passed an older man. He was wearing a Vietnam Veteran cap. I stopped. I said, “cap.” He understood. I looked him in the eyes. I said, “thank you for your service. Welcome back.” He said, “thank you.” We parted, as we continued our separate errands.

SSG. RYAN KNAUSS, I did not know you. Thank you, for your service – and for your ultimate sacrifice, for this country. I wish that folks in this once great nation would live in honor or your sacrifice.
