by Maggie Buettner Memorial Day memories of mine begin with the Memorial Day Parade in Buffalo Lake. Every year my dad proudly wears his Army uniform and marches with his fellow members of different military branches from WWII to Korea to Vietnam to Desert Storm, in a parade from the community center to the cemetery. My siblings and I carried flags and walked with as the band marched and played along the way. Our family still goes and now the grandchildren wave the flags.
