Street and Coleman Avenue ear-lier this week. Pictured above are:The Yellow Ribbon program be-came popular in 1981 to welcome American hostages home fromIran. According to The American FolkLife Center at the Library of Con-gress in Washington D.C., “On theCBS broadcast of January 28,Penelope Laingen, wife of the U.S.Chargé d'Affaires in Tehran, BruceLaingen, was shown outside herhome in Bethesda, Maryland. ‘It just came to me,’she said, ‘to givepeople something to do, ratherthan throw dog food at Iranians. Isaid, 'Why don't they tie a yellowribbon around an old oak tree?'That's how it started." Mrs. Lain-gen was also quoted in the Wash-ington Post, "So I'm standing andThe South Dakota NationalGuard 842nd Engineering hascompleted their one-year tour to Afghanistan and will arrive backin Spearfish on Thursday. Allalong the way there will be YellowRibbons hung on fence posts, util-ity poles and trees. Welcome Homefestivities include a family picnic,the de-activation ceremony at the Young Center and three parades -in Belle Fourche, Spearfish andSturgis. Two Bison soldiers, KirkHulm and Carson Chord, areamongst the 160+ soldiers whohave all returned safely. Otherswith Perkins County ties includeDoyle Udager, Adam Dauwen,Hank Uhrig Edward Jeulfs andJosh Guthmiller. Agroup of volunteers hung Yel-low Ribbons on Bison’s Mainwaiting and praying . . . and one of these days Bruce is going to untiethat yellow ribbon. It's going to beout there until he does." Since thattime, the yellow ribbon symbolhad become a banner throughwhich families can express theirdetermination to be reunited withtheir absent loved ones.The American Folk Life Centerhas attempted to trace the originof the yellow ribbon and they don’thave an exact answer. There wasthe popular song by Irwin Levineand L. Russell Brown, copyrightedin 1972, "Tie a Yellow RibbonRound the Ole Oak Tree" and an-other, “Around Her Neck She Worea Yellow Ribbon,” that gained pop-ularity in a 1940’s John Waynemovie. That song was alreadyaround during the Civil War andthere’s documentation that yellowribbons were worn by sweetheartsand wives of the men who foughtin that war. The custom probablydidn’t originate in this country!There is documentation found inthe unearthing of Pompeii, Italy. A painting unearthed there after theeruption of Mt. Vesuvius shows aman standing next to a tree witha large yellow ribbon wrappedaround it. During the EnglishCivil War, the Puritan Army of English Parliament wore yellowribbons and yellow sashes onto thebattlefield. There are other docu-mentation's, as well.However it originated, today, inthe United States of America, the Yellow Ribbon has come to meanfamily and community support forU.S. military personnel.The yellow ribbon was donatedby the Hurry & Hustle Commu-nity Club.
