by Brad Dison

98-year-old  Maurice Thrasher shared with me some fascinating details of his life in the Pine Grove community of Bienville Parish, learning a trade, going to war, and coming home.  It is important that we document our memories so they will be preserved for future generations. If you would like to send me your memoirs for possible publication, or would like some tips on how to record your memoirs, please email me at
