New officers were elected recently at a Marine Corps League meeting.

The officers for Detachment 746 are commandant, Ron Larson; senior vice commandant, Erv Huber; junior vice commandant, Earl Huber; paymaster, Leo Istas; chaplin, Myron Zeeck; secretary, Bill Russell; and sergeant at arms, Dave Morgan.

Members discussed ways to promote the MCL and Detachment 746.

Russell volunteered to operate as liaison officer and coordinate submissions for the quarterly Department of South Dakota Marine Corps League newsletter.

Morgan presented each member with a beautiful brass medallion, honoring the Marine Corps. It was a lovely gift, something to keep and pass on.

Nine members of the Marine Corps League, Detachmant 746, attended the funeral of John Heilman III of Huron. Services were held March 16 at Welter Funeral Home in Huron. John was the son of John Heilman II of Miller, a charter member of the detachment and a World War II South Pacific combat veteran. Also in attendance was one member of the MCL Auxiliary, Detachment 348.
