Susan Sampson | Souvenir from World War II

Today, Dillis Burgess “Dick” Ward III is an 88-year-old resident of East Wenatchee, but during WWII he was a Navy man serving under conditions of combat as intense as any that a Navy man was likely to see. He brought home difficult memories, but also one souvenir that he can cherish.

When we moved to Wenatchee I looked forward to planting a garden. I got plenty of great local advice. “You can grow anything, but don’t plant shrubs under the eaves. The snow falls of the roof and crushes them,” a former wet-sider warned us. The Master Gardeners at the farmer’s market coached us, “Kill off your lawn. Keep your compost damp. Don’t spray bugs that look like flies because some are really bees.”
