Memorial Day Ceremony(2016)
Every year on Memorial Day, the American Legion Gaudette Kirk-Post 138 holds services to help us remember and honor those who lost their lives fighting for our nation. This ceremony is a time for us to recognize our honored dead from WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The ceremonies typically open with a prayer and a reading of the Gettysburg Address. Marching Bands are typically also present to perform song selections and guest speakers are brought to the podium. There is also a POW/MIA ceremony and distribution of wreaths and flowers.
