The flag flying over the bandstand during May is in honor of Abraham Henry Nunnikhoven.

Abe was inducted into the Army, April 12, 1945, at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. He departed for the Pacific Theater October 15, 1945. He served as in automotive mechanic in post-war Japan and returned home on November 13, 1946. He was awarded the Asiatic Pacific Service Medal, Army of Occupation Medal and the Victory Medal.

Upon his return to Oskaloosa, Abe resumed farming with his father. He farmed several places in Mahaska County before purchasing his first farm west of Cedar in 1954. He later purchased a farm five miles southeast of Oskaloosa that became known as the home place.
