TONASKET — The Okanogan County Historical Society will sponsor three presentations on a group called the Seagoing Cowboys, who volunteered to take cattle and horses to war-torn countries after WWII from 1945 to 1947. Seven thousand U.S. men and boys took part; 29 from Washington State and 14 from Okanogan County.

Peggy Reiff Miller of Indiana has been researching this group since 2002. She will be coming to Okanogan County to speak at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at the Whitestone Church of the Brethren and at 11:30 a.m. at the Ellisforde Church of the Brethren. The topic for the church presentations is: Swords into Plowshares: The Seagoing Cowboy Story.
