“Many Grand Rapids homes boast four
star flags in their windows, but few such
flags represent four sons fighting as close
to the front lines as the Veersma brothers
are.”
This was the opening paragraph of an
article printed in the Grand Rapids Herald
on Sunday, October 22, 1944. Along with

where they were assigned and a history of
their families.
Once again we are fortunate to have
the honor of being able to show apprecia-
tion for their outstanding dedication and
service to our Country. Instead of in the
big city of Grand Rapids, it is here in the
community of the Morley Stanwood area.
All four brothers attended Morley High
School.
The bench pictured was purchased by
the Veersma families and will be dedicat-
ed at the Morley War Memorial that is to
be constructed at the park by the Morley
Dam. Donations would be greatly appreci-
ated and for details contact the Morley Vil-

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is the 2010 North American Car of the

Hybrid can take you up to 700 city miles on one tank of gas. Plus, Ford qual-
ity can’t be beat by Honda or Toyota, and only Ford offers SYNC® technol-
ogy. So there’s never been a better time to drive one.
