Memorial Day ceremony at Lincoln American Legion Post 263

[Click on photos below to enlarge.]

The Lincoln American Legion Post 263 held their annual Memorial Day service on the grounds outside their Fifth Street location. As in the past several holidays, bad weather visited the area, but this time not until the ceremony was over and everyone had an opportunity to share their respects collectively to the men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation in the military.

A look at a portion of the crowd that gathered.

The women's auxiliaries lay a wreath to signify our respect for those who have fallen.


The rifle squad fires three volleys.

And then taps was played.



The tradition of ham and beans afterward filled the dining area with guests.

This year the winds and inclement weather didn't arrive until after the ceremony was over.
