LETTER: Veterans’ information needed

From Gary O’Daniels, Creston

Creston’s VFW Post 1797 is looking forward to conducting Memorial Day services once again in 2021. The format of the program will be different than in previous years.

In order to recognize the intent of Memorial Day as a time to honor U.S. veterans who served in the various branches of military service, we would like to recognize veterans who are buried at Graceland Cemetery and Calvary Cemetery.

The information needed is: the veterans name, dates of service, branch of military service, rank of service, job while in the military, location of service and any special awards received. This information can be sent to Gary O’Daniels, VFW 1797 Post Commander, 1204 N. Cedar St., Creston, IA 50801.

Information can also be e-mailed to odanielsgary@gmail.com.
