Galion High School honored the family of Kendall Ivy during the school’s pep rally Friday afternoon as part of the Eyes of Freedom Memorial Exhibit. The display featured life-sized murals of the 23 Marines of Lima Company who were killed during combat in Iraq. Among the images is a painting of Ivy, a 1995 Galion High School graduate who was killed May 11, 2005, after a roadside bomb exploded and killed six. Lima Company member Mike Strahle, who was on the truck with Ivy and was injured during the explosion, presented Ivy’s family with a Marine Corps flag which was signed by those who came to see the murals this week. Pictured from left are Lee Ann Ivy, Gabe Ivy, Harrison Ivy, Reagan Ivy and Caleb Ivy. After Lee Ann received the flag, she presented to Galion High School principal Ron Williams to hang at the school.
