BLANCHARDVILLE - The son of a Monroe World War II veteran whose uniform is on display at a museum in Normandy, France, will show a presentation about his father's life in Blanchardville on Saturday. Bill Logeson, son of the late Robert Logeson, said he thought his father's story, which extends from Monroe to the battlefields of WWII, would be interesting for people to hear. Robert, a tech sergeant for the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army, was originally from Blanchardville, said his daughter Peg Roddick.
