The Marion County Veterans Honor Guard is getting some much-needed financial assistance from the Marion County Fiscal Court to purchase a new bus.
Paul Powell, a member of the honor guard, addressed the court during its regular monthly meeting Aug. 18. He informed the court that the honor guard has been using their current bus, which is a 1997 model, since 2004. It has more than 217,000 miles on it.
“It’s in bad shape. We need help,” Powell said.
