Memorial Day: Honoring our heroes

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Crowds of people showed their support on Monday to celebrate Memorial Day services at Mountain View Cemetery in Mountain Home. On Friday it was pouring rain and that did not stop volunteers from placing a 1,000 flags

One volunteer even stated how some of those buried here fought in the rain, snow, sleet and hail.

The Air Force Honor Guard was in place as well as several members of American Legion Posts. MHAFB Commander Col. Kunkel n and wife, Mayor Rich Sykes and his wife and members of the military branches came out to honor the day.For the full story, pick up a copy of the Mountain Home News or click on this link to subscribe to the newspaper's online edition.

    Correction, neither the Air Force nor the Base Honor Guard were at this service. The Base Honor Guard was in Hailey. The Honor Guard present was the American Legion Honor Guard comprised of members of Legion Post 26 and Post 101. They along with other Legion members and the American Legion Riders made this service happen as well as the many volunteers that helped place the marker flags on Friday.
