OCA office raises flag to honor past president

The next time you drive by the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association’s main office on Route 42 in Marysville you may notice a new addition to the landscape. In early November, the location’s first flag pole was put in place to honor the association’s past President Bert Skinn (1976-77).

“OCA built this building and moved its office here in 1997, and we have always wanted a flag pole and flag,” said current OCA President Sam Sutherly. “Thanks to the Huron County Cattlemen’s Association and their desire to recognize one of their local cattleman, a partnership effort between Huron County and OCA made the flag pole a reality.”

He was a very active member of the Norwalk community as well as the local and state cattlemen’s associations. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving with the 9th infantry Division in World War II and received 3 Purple Heart Medals.
