Compatriots of the the Central Iowa Chapter S.A.R.,
First thanks to those of you (and the 4 ladies from the Iowa D.A.R.) that were able to attend the ceremony in Marshalltown, Iowa on May 7th, 2010.
Compatriot Dave Shannon also gave an extremely interesting presentation of the use of divining rods and took photos of the event.
For those of you that were not able to attend, I have attached a photo and an article link.
Next up for the Central Iowa Chapter Color Guard is the internment of a WWI at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery, Friday May 14th around 1:15 pm.
IVC is centrally located approximately 10 miles west of Des Moines and runs south along Interstate 80 in Dallas County near the community of Van Meter. (I-80, Exit 113). Interstate signs mark the exit. The cemetery entrance is also easily identifiable and is just off of Veterans Memorial Drive (formerly “R” Avenue).
