Honoring those who serve in Siouxland, Marcus

29 May

I went for a drive Sunday afternoon to get out and look around as spring moves into summer and the lure of bright, puffy clouds in a blue sky was also alluring. I drove a ways and ended up in Marcus, Iowa. I had visited this small community once before during a summer fair. The community was quiet, but decorated for honoring those who serve on Memorial Day. And these folks will honor those from their community and surrounding area who answered a call to serve their country. Every year, and other times throughout the year these people are honored. But sometimes on wonders if that is enough in recognizing their service.
