Very impressive indeed was the Memorial Day program held at the Colfax high school yesterday 5/27/19. The American Legion Post #131, with Chris Larson commander, are to be congratulated for a job well done!
It was touching to share with the high school band, students and audience to celebrate the Memorial Day purpose and meaning. William C. Yingst JR., District Administrator, certainly oversees a wonderful operation & facilities.
Many participants shared the experience by signing various flags and receiving Apache Tear stone souvenirs. Several children were fortunate enough to receive spent shell casings from the American Legion’s 21 Gun Salute.
Thirty plus Veterans & Family Members took forms that will order military medical & personnel records -along with ribbons and medals entitled to. Results can be remarkable.
It is best for Veterans & even descendants of Veterans – to get info clear back to the Civil War, to contact a County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO) for assistance.
Thanx again Colfax!
God Bless You, your Loved Ones & our Troops.
