Dale Buelow was born December 4, 1947, in Cedar Rapids to parents Albert and Esther Buelow.  He graduated from Center Point High School.   Dale served in the United States Army for 22 years, retiring as a master sergeant. While in the service, he served stateside at several locations, meeting his wife, Pauline, at Fort Lewis in Washington.  There were also stops overseas in Germany, Iraq, and Korea.  Dale and Pauline enjoyed moving every few years, he shrugged his shoulders and said, “you get used to it, it’s just what you do”. That accepting outlook translated to the work that Dale did over the years, he served as a drill sergeant throughout his enlisted years.  In fact, his battalion is in the movie, “Stripes”, look for him carrying the American flag during the graduation ceremony.  From his years of service, Dale learned how to deal with all sorts of people, and treat them with respect.  

After his Army retirement, he joined the ranks of the US Post Office for thirteen years.  Following that he was a volunteer at Mercy Medical Center, and as an elder at St John Lutheran Church.
