From crop fields to the battle field: Golter recalls early years and WW II experience DRESSED FOR DUTYY: It’s been many years since Glen Golter has donned a uniform for military service, but even in his later years he was proud to represent his country by sporting his Army duds for veterans programs.  
Growing up on a farm in Nebraska in the 1930s was tough. No rain meant no crops; and no crops meant no money. It was a life that was very challenging, and a life that even in his 90s Glen Golter remembers very well. Living on a farm near Arapahoe, Golter—now of Gothenburg—says his family was “very poor”. He says even getting to school was difficult in those days. “We either had to walk to school or stay home. So in bad weather we either had the choice to stay home or brave the elements – and it was about three miles to school,” Golter recalls. He chose to brave the elements many times and trudge his way to school. However, after finishing 8th grade Golter left school to stay home and help on the farm. That was not uncommon in those days.
