Now that looks nice

Earlier this year Lucy Renze donated a model of the USS Iowa built by her late husband Loren to the Estherville VFW Post 3388.

The model now has a proper backdrop thanks to the talents of local artist Susie Jensen.

Jensen donated her time and talents to paint a dividing wall within the dining area of VFW.

The backdrop is an ocean scene that includes drawings of the USS Badger Destroyer Escorts #1071 and the USS Ranger CVA 61 – Aircraft Carrier.

VFW honor guard members Mike Dalen and Gene Kaltvedt both served in Vietnam. Both served on the VFW Honor Guard with Loren Renze. Dalen is the current Commander of the Estherville VFW Post.

Come and check out the display.
