This is how we spent our morning – at the local cemetery for the Memorial Day commemoration. I was happy to see such a large turn out.
The local Airborne Association presented and retired the colors.
The boy scouts presented the folding of the flags with a recitation of the 13 folds and what they stand for. Honestly, if anyone ever really listened, this alone would tell you why God can’t be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance.
The local high school presented us with a traditional solo of the National Anthem as well as a melody of the different military branches and their songs.
The key note speaker was Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack.
Presentation of the wreaths from all the local organizations.
