Around 100 people gathered on Saturday, Oct. 3 for the Memorial Statue Dedication of SP4 Leo Meyer and Bruce, his British-trained Labrador retriever. Leo was killed in action in South Vietnam on Oct. 5, 1968. He was a tracker and five fellow combat trackers traveled to witness and participate in the ceremony, including the guest speaker, Frank Merritt of Easton, Pennsylvania. The weather was cold and drizzly and one of the trackers said it was exactly like being in the Vietnam mountains. In the background of one of these photos is the Johnsburg school that Leo attended as a youth. Leo’s sister Rosie is pictured along with her brother David in that photo. Near the end of the ceremony, emcee Jerry Lauby asked all veterans to stand and give Leo a final salute. Well over 30 veterans present did so, including David and at least 14 who were boots on the ground in Vietnam.
