Before the biggest high school basketball game of the season in Rapid City, S.D., Marines stationed at Buckley conducted a surprise ceremony to honor Lance Corporal Joe Welke. The school agreed to permanently display the former football star's jersey alongside his military uniforms in the gym. At the height of the ceremony, Gunnery Sergeant Todd Martin marched across the gym floor, carrying the formal dress blue uniform of the same man he helped lay to rest two months earlier.
