The flag flying over the bandstand during February is in honor of Marvin Snider.
Marvin enlisted in the army on Sept. 30, 1946, in Fort Crook, Nebraska. He served as a water supply technician in Japan with Battery A of the 1st FA Battalion in Japan after the surrender of the Japanese. He was discharged on July 28, 1948, at Stoneman, California and was awarded the World War II Victory Medal and the Army of Occupation Medal.

After he returned to Iowa, he went back to work at Cargill in Washington. Marvin worked at several jobs and farmed until going to work as a mechanic at Buck Walter’s Motors in Washington, Iowa, a career that lasted 29 years. After he retired in 1994, he moved to Nevada, Missouri to be near family. During his time in Nevada, Marvin worked part-time for Wilkinson Pharmacy. He resided there for the next 15 years and moved to Oskaloosa in 2010.
