The weather turned out perfect for the American Legion, Post 108 Memorial Day celebration. Commander Clyde McClullough took charge of our formal presentation honoring those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to our country. Service Officer Norm Manly filled in as Chaplin and gave an opening prayer and benediction at the end. In total nine members from Post 108 took part in the ceremony.

The duty of our veterans past and present is the fiber of the word freedom and is stronger by our recognition of service and sacrifice. We honor that service and sacrifice today and should carry it forward for our children to honor. Freedom and democracy are the result of all of the most honorable this country has produced. Today we stand to remember the most honorable amongst us and we must continue to carry the burden of their sacrifice, lest we lose sight of what true freedom is.
Today is for remembering......stand in honor of them, walk in their path of duty, remember the cost and hold in your heart the cause of freedom.
We remember today, Memorial day, our Veterans.
