MASH community blood drive

The annual MASH community blood drive was held at the Northwoods Veterans Post on Thursday, Aug. 4, 2022, and drew a pretty steady stream of donors who came to give a life-saving blood donation.

Three young Merrill men help set the scene for the MASH themed blood drive each year. L to R: Kurtis Schulz, Ricky Smith, and Marshall Dymora have been coming out for 7, 10, and 3 years, respectively, using their personal collections of military gear, memorabilia, and reproductions. All three men share a love for military history and enjoy the chance to get together for this and other reenactment events. Schulz and Smith remember playing military video games and reenacting them as young kids playing together in their neighborhood. Tina L. Scott photo.
