Did you know?

When Forrest was five years old, a fire engulfed him burning his legs.  Doctors

thought they would have to amputate his legs.  Fortunately, they didn't have to

and after years of braces and walking around with crutches, he survived to

become on of the greatest football players Nebraska has ever seen.

Forrest Behm served in the United States Army during World War II as a

signal corps officer.
