Service Officer - Army
Marc Anderson - Service Officer, Poppy Chair and Post Trustee
Drafted into the army infantry in 1968. Went to OCS (officer candidate school) and graduated as a 2LT small unit infantry officer. Went to Vietnam in Sept on 1969. Spent one year over there. Was a
platoon leader, executive officer and heavy weapons company commander in the Americal division. Got out of the service in 1971.
Married the love of my life (Mary Kay Duffy) in 1974. We have spent our entire married life living in this area. We have two grown children: Katherine and Christopher. They have blessed us with three grandsons.
I went into management in 1973 and have worked for three major companies in the twin city area. I retired in 2014! Since retirement I have stayed very busy volunteering with the Memorial Rifle Squad at Ft Snelling, working with DAV transportation at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital and baby sitting our grandsons.
Mary Kay and I also travel as much as possible throughout the United States and Europe. In addition to that I have become very active with our VFW Post 210 in Lakeville. I’m currently the service officer, the Poppy chairman and a two year trustee. I am very proud of our post and all the vererans I serve with. We have grown in personnel and become very active in the community since the sale of our building. We are now able to concentrate on raising funds to support our local veterans and their families including the Veterans Home in Hastings.
