CIC Activities

Central Iowa Chapter Compatriots, Just a quick note to let you know of some of the activities of your Central Iowa Chapter Compatriots. On September 2nd members helped with a ceremony that brought the Flag from Ground Zero on 9-11 to the Iowa State Capital. I was honored to have assisted with holding this flag through the Capital Rotunda. Some of our members have been working on a joint project with the Iowa Department of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War to honor Sara A. Palmer ("Aunt Becky") of Civil War fame. I won't give you the details. If interested Google Sarah A. Palmer, Aunt Becky, Civil War and you will find her. This fascinating woman's grave in Woodland Cemetery in Des Moines was recently "rediscovered" by some of our members. We have determined that a historical plaque needs to be placed telling of her historical significance. We hope to procure a military stone and have the plaque placed on the reverse side. At the same time we plan to sand down the rusted flag pole, refinish it and fly the colors illuminated with a solar powered light, Listen to the Van and Bonnie (1040 AM [...]
