Tom Reed, brother of Walter Reed — the Army Major whose name and memory is immortalized with an Army medical center in Washington, D.C. being named after him — is buried in Marion Cemetery.

Students on the trip were Michael Kirkpatrick, Landon Leiker, Brandon Meierhoff, Tristen Snelling, Emily Hett, Megan Overton, Annie Whitaker, Alex Young, and Olivia Young.
