Leaders of the 322nd Engineer Company told a Luther College audience of 1,300 people on Friday that they couldn't believe the turnout and other shows of support from the community.

"This town is fantastic," said Captain Troy King. "Everyone I've met has been extremely friendly," he commented. Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Baker agreed. "This is overwhelming," he said, "I've never seen anything like this (turnout)."
