The flag flying over the bandstand during September is in honor of Danny Lee Swim.
Danny entered the Army on January 21, 1969. He received his basic training and Flight Operations Coordinator education at Fort Polk, Louisiana. Danny was then sent to Vietnam, where he served as a Flight Operations Coordinator. Upon his discharge, August 24, 1970, he was awarded National Defense Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Air Medal, Purple Heart, Vietnam Campaign Medal. Look for his banner on the Oskaloosa City Square near the bandstand.

Danny returned to Oskaloosa after his discharge and soon went to work at Pella Corp, where he worked for 30 years.
