Nice Video to Share
"I produced this back in 2003, seems like a lifetime ago. It's a film that documents the spirit of giving back to Waverly.
Since a number of the people in this video have passed on, the film has become even more least to me. God
bless Wilbur Schield and Ike Ackerman...two very special friends to Waverly. This was shot on film, super 16mm so it's got
kind of cool look to it...hardly anyone shoots on film anymore. It took some research during scriptwriting phase of this, but
is was a real labor of love. Fascinating. It's now on YouTube for future reference. As time passes, maybe some of the
younger generation will want to watch a story about that special spirit that helped build Waverly". James Infelt

WAVERLY, Iowa- It's taken a long time, but an Iowa serviceman who died in Vietnam will finally be buried with
full military honors. Donald McGrane, of Waverly, was a Navy Aviation Anti-submarine technician on a
helicopter flying a search and rescue mission when enemy fire shot it down in July, 1967. McGrane and three
crew members died in the crash. Since then searchers found their remains, but it took years to identify them all.
Now all four will be buried together April 2nd, at Arlington National Cemetery.
