Memorial Day Ceremony

American Legion #935 Color Guard and Lincoln Way High School Air Force JROTC held Memorial Day ceremonies at several locations in Manhattan, Elwood, and Wilton Center on Monday, May 28th. The ceremonies were attended by many residents, who came out to honor our veterans on this solemn occasion. The ceremony included the reading of Psalm 23 and a poem called "In Flanders Field". There was a 21 gun salute, the Pledge of Allegiance, and "Taps" was played. It was a beautiful and moving ceremony.
