Calvin Kellerman advised civilians on agriculture

Calvin Kellerman, 89, keeps a small brass statue of an aged Vietnamese man hauling a load of firewood for cooking on display at his residence in Mendota Heights. He's not sure who made it, but he speculates it's made of artillery shells that had been fired by U.S. soldiers — collected, melted down, and turned into a gift given to him by the local farmers he advised. 
A World War II veteran, Kellerman signed up in 1966 to serve during the Vietnam War as a civilian agricultural advisor.
