Honoring those who serve from Siouxland, Le Mars

7 Jun

A week ago the entire nation paid tribute to those who have served in this country’s military, and for some paid the ultimate price. There really isn’t much more for me to add to what many others have said except thank you to those who have and are serving. In Siouxland a Memorial Observance is held in many communities. Again this year I attended the ceremony in Le Mars, Iowa. Similar to last year‘s ceremony, it honors and remembers those from the area. It is just a nice ceremony and every year more flags are added to those displayed around the Plymouth County Courthouse dedicated by families and friends of those who have served.
