This benefit will be held at the Holmen American Legion from 1-10 for a local Marine, Gauge Griffin who is a graduate of Gale Ettrick Trempealeau High School and served in the Marine Corp in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, he was severely injured when he stepped on a bomb and lost his leg, sustained brain trauma and other injuries. Doctors did not believe he would live, let alone talk again. With much therapy, he is able to talk and is working on walking with the help of a prosthetic leg, but this will be a very long process . This benefit will assist him and his family with some of his current and long term needs.
