Memorial Day observed in St. James

St. James American Legion Post 607 Commander Richard Doyle presented a wreath on behalf of the American Legion to the Veterans Park in Rolla on Monday. The wreath commemorated fallen soldiers.

Members of the VFW Post 5608 held a short Memorial Day service in front of the Veterans Memorial at the Missouri Veterans Home-St. James. Members fired shots and played Taps in honor of passed veterans.

Robbie Taylor and Hayley Sansoucie placed flags at veteran’s graves at the St. James Cemetery. Flags were provided thanks to local donations and members of the St. James VFW Post 5608 helped put a flag at over 200 veteran graves in the cemetery.
