Sheldon Fire & Ambulance Crews Honor Deployed Le Mars National Guardsmen

Sheldon, Iowa — Sheldon Fire and Ambulance crews were set up on top of the Country Club Road overpass above Highway 60 Monday morning to display their appreciation for a Le Mars National Guard Unit that is passing through after having been deployed for active duty.

A massive American Flag, which was suspended from the bucket of the Sheldon Fire Company’s aerial ladder truck parked on the overpass, was waving in the wind to wish the guardsmen good luck on their year-long deployment, and to show the support of the Sheldon community.

About 80 citizen-soldiers from the 113th Cavalry Troop C departed from Le Mars earlier Monday morning, traveling to Minnesota for training, before being deployed to Africa for approximately a year.
