Woodbury Lions Veterans Memorial
Staff Sergeant(R) Marcus Kuboy, a Woodbury resident, will give the Memorial Day address. Marcus Kuboy served in the insurgency phase of the Iraq War as a medic in A Company, 2-136 Mechanized Infantry of the Minnesota National Guard. He will present his experiences while deployed in Iraq and how being severely injured by a road side bomb has affected his life.
Marcus struggled with many surgeries and endured 14 months at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Minneapolis VA Medical Center. During his long recovery, he faced the choice to either “get bitter" or "get better." With great determination, Marcus has made an amazing recovery and will relate how the choices he made have impacted his life.

Color guards of the Woodbury High School Air Force Junior ROTC, the American Heritage Girls and the Woodbury Boy Scout Troop 559 will lead the Woodbury American Legion / VFW Rifle Squad to the Veterans Memorial.
