|Rock Church part of Dodgeville Memorial Day|
|Dodgeville veterans commemorated Memorial Day 2020 without a parade or traditional service at the Iowa County Veteran's Memorial or the high school, but remembering the fallen veterans on Monday, May 25 still took place at cemeteries.
The group began at the East Side Cemetery and then went to St. Joseph's Cemetery and to the Rock Cemetery (north of Dodgeville). Then they made a non-traditional stop at Bloomfield Nursing and Rehab Center to honor Don Kobbervig, a 101 year old veteran who is a resident there. He was unable to come out to see the ceremony as he was just being taken out of ICU and to his room about the time the veterans were at the cemeteries. Don had not missed a Memorial Day commemoration since he retired from WWII and he didn't this time as he watched from his room.
