Mark joins Iowa Army

National Guard

PVT Logan Mark from Williams joined the Iowa Army National Guard on Nov. 29 as a 68W Combat Medic Specialist. Mark will ship off to Basic Training for 10 weeks at Fort Sill, Oklahoma this summer. He will return Fall 2017 in time to start his senior year at Webster City High School.

Mark said, “I joined the Guard because I have always wanted to be part of something bigger than myself and I want to use the skills I already have to benefit the country. I also joined for the many benefits like getting my education paid for, improving myself mentally and physically, and gaining friends and memories along the way.”
