    As a young boy, I enjoyed going to the train Station just to watch the Trains come and go with people getting on and off trains. We lived in an Apartment accross from the BRANCH INN and vivididly remember how it looked, both inside and out. I would often go in to the lounge as the bartender knew me and often gave me a soft drink. I always thought it was a very nice place. When I got the news about the explosion of the Branch Inn, I was very saddened and even brought tears to my eyes,as the old memories came back. It has been some time since I was in Pueblo, and I must say that Union Street is very nice compaired to what it looked like back in the 40s. Pueblo has made many improvements in the town I grew up and where I volunteered for Army and where I lived until 1975: so keep up the good work "Pueblo." Submitted by Roy A. Archuleta
