Compatriots of the Iowa Society of the Sons of the American Revolution,
I would like to thank all of our members who are veterans.
A few I know for sure include John Butler, Don Corrigan, Harold Goodrich, Danny Krock, David Lamb, Bill Lees, Jim Trask, Ron Rittel, Dave Shannon, Paul Stout, Daniel Thorsen, Richard Webb, Volney Smith, Scott Rowley, John Scarpino.
I am sure there are many others whose names I don’t have.
Attached are several photos from ceremonies held today at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month at Woodland Cemetery in Des Moines, Iowa. Stops were made and 2 minutes of silence was observed at the grave of the one known War of 1812 veteran buried in this cemetery as well as the G.A.R. section of Civil War veterans and the Gold Star section of WWI veterans.
The ceremonies were lead by members of the GSW 1812 in the State of Iowa Color Guard.
Happy Veterans Day to all veterans and their families!
