SSgt. Marion V. Creveling was born and raised in Ringgold County.
Marion left Iowa and joined the United States Army in March of 1943. Marion completed basic and medical corpsman training in the states before shipping out to the Pacific Theatre for over two years.
SSgt. Creveling was assigned to the 8th Portable Hospital. His duties as a combat medic sent him to such exotic places as Bismarck Archipelago, New Guinea and Southern Philippines where he spent these two years patching up wounded soldiers.

Marion was discharged from the Army in Dec. 1945 and returned to Ringgold County where he owned and operated a hardware and trucking business in Ellston.
Marion and Naomi were blessed with three boys, Dennis, Bob and Bill. Marion now resides in the Mount Ayr Health Care Center.
