Marion Salutes All Veterans

Marion Body Works excels with help from the qualities that veterans bring to our workforce. Last week, one of the Marion family, Staff Sgt. Adam Zuehl, a Mechanical Drafter, was deployed to active duty with the U.S. Army. Our thoughts and prayers are with Adam and his family while he serves our country. We look forward to his safe return home and to our engineering department here at Marion.

Marion Supports Manawa Veterans Memorial

One value that stands strong in Marion Body Works’ history is to support local communities. This year has been no exception as Marion gave to the Manawa Veterans Memorial. The vision behind this Memorial was to construct a lasting tribute to the Veterans who have served and all who are serving today. Many local businesses have come together to support and honor our veterans through this project. Marion Body Works is proud to be a sponsor and donated $5,000 to help fund the construction of the Freedom Park Memorial Project. Everyone at Marion takes great pride in the support of our Veterans and those that have served to help protect our freedom.

The Vison of the Manawa Veterans Memorial

The Manawa Area Veterans Freedom Park will be a lasting tribute to those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The Memorial is intended for ANY veteran who has honorably, living or deceased or whom is currently serving.

The construction of the park will be built on the shores of the beautiful Lake Manawa in Manawa, Wisconsin. The goal is to complete the Veterans side of the park and have it dedicated on Veterans Day, 2017.
