Member Dog Barks:

Congratulations and a big thank you to memeber Pat Zenishek and his wife Toni for all their hard work with putting together the Detachment Scrap book that took 1st place at the State competition.

Member Pat Zenishek shared an email he received from Capt David Mabon, Company Commander, Fox CO, 2nd BN, 24th Marines, 4th MARDIV United States Marine Corps. Which read: “Gentlemen – Just wanted to let you know my sons and I were at the parade (Solon Beef Day Parade), and the Marine Corps League was great. Outstanding job. I am constantly impressed by the level of commitment and support the detachment has provided to the local community. Based on the email traffic I’ve seen of the MC League has stepped up and honored the veterans of eastern Iowa, whether they are a Marine, Soldier, Sailor, or Airmen. I commend your service to the community and to our veterans and keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.”

Member Pat Zenishek presented the Boy Scout Troop #120 an award for participation in placing flags on Veteran’s graves at Oakhill Cemetery during the December meeting
