The organization is open to All good men of every age and circumstance who have an interest in the early Utah Pioneers. It is not necessary to have pioneer ancestry to join.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 17

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.

Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived by a source of clear drinking water, from Middle English fresch ‘fresh’, ‘not salty’ (Old French freis, of Germanic origin). There is a place of this name on the Isle of Wight (named from Old English fersc ‘fresh’ + wæter ‘water’), which may also be a source of the surname.
