ADA, Mich. (WOOD) Memorial Day is about trips, cookouts, and a long weekend for a lot of people. But it’s really a time to honor all Americans who have died in military service. One of those brave men who serves our country is Mark Beyer. He has served in the Air Force for two years and just got back from a six month deployment in Southeast Asia. He decided he wanted to surprise his little brother Aidan in his classroom at Collins Elementary in Ada.
