Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.

Gov. Reynolds orders flags at half-staff to honor fallen WWII soldier returning to Iowa 

  DES MOINES– Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Saturday, August 3, 2019 to honor a fallen U.S. soldier.

Cpl. Ralph L. Bennett, of Ames, Iowa, was last seen on June 13, 1944 as his unit participated in the siege of Myitkyina, Burma. After the battle, Bennett was reported Killed in Action (KIA). His remains were eventually transferred to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1949 and later identified in 2018. 

Bennett’s military awards and honors include the Purple Heart, Army Good Conduct Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal (with one bronze service star), World War II Victory Medal, Presidential Unit Citation, and Honorable Service Lapel Button – World War II.  

Bennett will be buried with full military honors.

  I can't seem to find a good internet connection that lasts the full month.  I seem to use up my data plan in about 11-15 days depending on how many of my programs need updates.  I have tried using the libraries internet and that helps until they close.
