Thank you celebrations held for Iowa National Guard members

WAVERLY (KWWL) -

Some communities held "thank you" celebrations for Iowa National Guard members and their families after recent deployments. In Washington, the celebration for the 134th Medical Company included fireworks and a concert by country singer Jason Brown at the Washington County Fairgrounds. In Bremer County, Camp Ingawanis played host to a welcome home picnic for members of the 1-133rd. There was plenty of games, crafts, and food and time to just relax. At least two dozen guardsmen and women and their families attended.

"Being former military myself, I wanted to find a good way to give back to the community and make sure that everyone knows that they're appreciated," said organizer Clay Dahlquist.

The evening wrapped up with a fireworks display.
