The Reinbeck American Legion Post 242 dedicated their new plaque on the outside of the Reinbeck Memorial Building on November 14. This display board honors all Gladbrook-Reinbeck military personnel currently serving in the armed forces. Fifteen G-R graduates are currently honored by the plaque.

Families of the honored service members were invited to a dinner served by the post and the legion auxiliary. Each of the families received a wooden cutout design of the branch of service their sons are currently serving in.

John Stull explained to the families the importance of serving in the military and also the value of what an American Legion membership can afford each individual.

Commander Marshall Mennenga and Stull then presented each family member with their respective wooden plaques and thanked them for their service to our country.
