DAV grave markers honor disabled veterans

Disabled American Veterans Chapter 4 of Minot has begun a DAV grave marker project to honor disabled veterans.

The permanent markers, made of steel, lay flat and are anchored so they will not interfere with mowing and maintenance. There is a hole placed at the edge of the marker to facilitate placing a flag.

The first DAV grave marker was placed April 22 at Rosehill Memorial Park on the grave of Max Zurcher, a severely wounded Army veteran of Vietnam. He was awarded the Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts. Zurcher was heavily involved in promoting veterans’ causes and helping individual veterans until his recent death.
