Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association and Oleson-Halweg American Legion Post 125 came together to give back by producing "Rock 4 Vets" November 3rd at the American Legion Post 125. Thanks to sponsors Jensen Dealership, North West REC, Rexwinkel Funeral Home, Plymouth Energy, Total Motors, Plymouth Feeds, and Williams & Company, all military were invited to attend for free. A nice crowd attended the first ever local event featuring live music from the Jammers and a recognition ceremony for all who served.

The purpose of the event was to honor all military, connect Veterans to resources, and raise funds for the Midwest Honor Flight. The total amount raised for Midwest Honor Flight from the event was $5,200.
