    The Ville Platte Rotary Club today (Tuesday) heard from retired veteran Robert Reed of Mamou at their weekly meeting held at the Civic Center.

    Reed was dressed for the July 4th holiday as “Uncle Sam”. Reed is a Mamou High graduate and his uncle was well known educator and Cajun revivalist Revon Reed. During his nine years in the Navy Robert Reed served in submarine duty for 2 and a half years. He served as “Yeoman” handling administrative duties. During his tours of duty, he was sent to the U.S. Embassy in Australia and on one tour his sub went into the Mediterranean Sea.

     He explained that he served during the Cold War between the US and Russia. The subs were either armed with torpedoes or Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.

    Reed worked in the postal service after returning from the service. He was the special guest of Rotarian Peter Strawitz.

    In other news, Ville Platte Mayor announced there will be a free fireworks display Wednesday night at 9:00pm at the Ville Platte Grand Pavillion.
