    My sincere condolences to Jeanette and the entire Rindahl family. Bud was a valuable member of the North Dakota Air National Guard. He made sure he was available to assist for any and all key training, inspections and deployments. He set a wonderful example for all of us and was a tremendous member of our 119th Supply organization. He will be missed. Warm Regards,
