Marana couple gathers markers for museum display
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Dick Jarenski and Sue Rainey of Marana have spent the past six months collecting World War II submarine patches and placing them in 4- by 6-foot display cases. The couple is donating the displays to a veterans' museum in Branson, Mo., later this year.
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Sue Rainey and Dick Jarenski of Marana are reflected in a glass case holding the patches from each of the 52 submarines lost during World War II. The couple used blogs and websites to let people know they were in need of the 300-plus patches donated for their display, to be placed at a veterans museum in Missouri.
