INAUGURAL PARADE: Iowans Attending
Look for some Iowans in the inaugural parade Monday.
The Isiserettes Drill and Drum Corp of Des Moines are scheduled to be 10th in the parade line. This is the Isiserettes second time performing for the president.
Two Iowans are also among the eight citizen co-chairs for the inauguration.
Navy Petty Officer Taylor Morris lost both of his hands and legs to an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
The second Iowa co-chair is Republican Rob Hach. He works in the wind industry and supported president Obama after he renewed the wind energy tax credit.
Their float comes in third to last.
Adding to this list, more than 100 Iowa National Guard members are on duty in the nation’s capital.
They spent the weekend training with 6,000 others from 25 other states. The troops will help with transportation, event management, and security.
