The Annual Mule Deer Foundation Banquet honors veterans every year, but this year they decided to take it a step further.
ACE Towing offered to donate the table in remembrance of the last eight fallen soldiers from North Dakota.
The room took a moment of silence that those attending would never forget.
“There was 300 people in there between employees and attendees and volunteers. You could’ve heard a pin drop in that ballroom. I probably held it for 30 to 45 seconds easily,” said Marshall Johnson, the regional director for the Mule Deer Foundation.
Those honored at the table are Cpl. Jeremiah S. Santos, Sgt. Darren M. Linde, Spc. Tyler J. Orgaard, Spc. Keenan A. Cooper, Staff Sgt. David C. Kuehl, Spc. Chris Kleinwachter, Cpl. Nathan J. Good Iron, and Spc. Paul A. Beyer.
