To the Editor:
I really liked the story on David Tefft and his service in World War II (R-E, Nov. 17).
I knew Dave and we worked together in the VFW in the ‘60s. He was a very humble man and fun to work with.
A crazy thing happened after I moved to North Platte, Neb. I had a 1933 Ford three-window coupe street rod for sale because of a pending move to another city. I got a call and visit from a Gary Tefft in Milwaukee and he soon came and bought the '33 Ford and drove it back to Wisconsin. I mentioned that I knew a David Tefft in Red Wing, and he said that is his dad. Small world.
I still miss that "corvette yellow" coupe and hope Gary still has it.
