    The former U.S. Marine was first deployed to the island of Saipan and later sent to battle at islands along Japan, as the United States fought back after that nation attacked Pearl Harbor.
    Cassetta served four years in the Marines before being discharged in 1947.

    Harvey Stewart never claimed any of the rightful credit due him for being a good coach. He would, however, take credit for hiring a good coach.
    “Hiring John Smith, I guess I did do that one good thing for Great Falls High,” Stewart joked.
    Smith is now the all-time winningest basketball coach in the history of the state, so the hire certainly was a good one. Smith said Stewart did far more for the school than hire a good basketball coach, though.
