Memorial Day is a time for reflection on those who have served and have been lost in the line of duty.  Marion County Sheriff Ron Goemaat says the Sheriff’s Office also is paying tribute to Sheriff’s Office transport officer Virgil Behrens who, one year ago on May 22, lost his life in a deer-related car accident while on his way to training in Des Moines.  Goemaat says both he and the Sheriff’s Office staff will never forget Virgil’s service to the department.
