North Platte Canteen

I have some good friends from Nebraska and pretty consistently tease them about their state, since I live in neighboring Iowa.

And I've been through North Platte several times. It's primary attraction to me was as a gas stop on my way to or from Colorado.

But the next time I go through there I'll probably make a side-trip to visit the site of the North Platte Canteen. Check out this incredible story about volunteer women who served every trainload of WWII soldiers and sailors that stopped there. Servant evangelism, love with skin on.
