Other Comments:
Aug 2014 (?) - At a family gathering in North Yarmouth, Maine Lt. Colonel Peter Ogden (USA) of Maine Veteran's Affairs presented an Eagle Cane to Lendall B Knight in recognition of his service in WWII.  Originating in Oklahoma, The Eagle Cane Project was introduced in Maine in 2008. A collaborative effort involving Maine Wood Carvers Association and Maine Woodturners, the aim of the project is to present quality, hand-carved and highly personalized Eagle Head Canes to Maine's disabled veterans in recognition and appreciation for their service to our country. The cane has an hand-carved eagle head and replicas of the requested medals and ribbons.
