Most of the time, the Ruston news alerts don't mention anything about our hometown here in Washington. They usually refer to sports in Ruston, Louisiana or parts for the Ruston train engine. Occasionally they reference someone with the name Ruston.

Today's list included this article about a letter written by Major Ruston to the father of a young army captain in World War I. The letter outlined how Captain Salomons died a hero after refusing to leave his sinking ship until all his men had made it to safety. The home parish in England had 128 men die in this tragic collision between two ships. You can read the full story here...
