Mel Heckt Honored by Minnesota Vikings at Salute-to-Service Game

November 7, 2016 — Minneapolis, MN  

Long-time Bassford Remele attorney Melvin D. Heckt ("Mel") was honored by the Minnesota Vikings at the Salute-to-Service Game on November 6, 2016.

Mel joined the Marine Corp in May 1943. He was in one of four Marine highly-trained soldier groups named Edison's Raiders. Mel trained in San Diego and attained the rank of corporal. He served in Guam and Okinawa. Upon returning from Okinawa to attend officer candidate school, Mel played football in the Marines before he was discharged in the fall of 1945. Mel spent 30 months in the Marine Corps; 20 months were spent serving overseas. Mel was a machine gunner. His war journals were used by George Feifer in the book on World War II entitled "Tennozan" on Okinawa. Fourteen of Mel's journal entries are quoted and printed in the book. After the war, Mel finished college, went to law school and joined the firm in 1950. He retired from the firm in 1994.

Bassford Remele would like to thank Mel and all the military soldiers and their families for their service.
