Soldiers prayer service at the dedication of the Sikanni Chief River Bridge.
"[The bridge was] one of the few bridges of its description on the road that was never destroyed by nature. Long after it had been rendered unnecessary by the construction of a permanent structure nearby, it remained a monument to the hardihood and skill of the men who built it."
-Colonel Heath Twitchel, 95th Engineers (center).
