A big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who have bestowed the following awards upon the North Platte Canteen. It is with immense gratitude that these awards are accepted and displayed here in honor of the 6 million servicemen and women, the Canteen volunteers, and the North Platte Canteen. They are all very special.
I love your website. It is very deserving of many awards, and I'm happy to give it my WWII WebSite Award and a link from my WWII Website page.
