Military show

Photo by Roger Riveland Ten-year-old Adam Njos looks at the various ways that grenades were launched from service rifles in World War I with his grandfather Dave Njos, both of Williston. The rifles and grenades were part of an immense display of WW1 items covering nearly a dozen 8-foot tables and owned by Rod Lassey of Cartwright, who collects WW1 military-related items from all countries that were engaged in that war. The North Plains Military Show in Williston was sponsored as a fundraiser for the Fort Buford 6th Infantry Association.

There were hundreds of military items of all kinds on display, from sheet music from World War I to uniforms, manuals, Japanese invasion currency-money, rifles, artillery casings, handguns and almost anything that was used militarily by any country ever. Some items were for sale but most were just for display.
