BREMEN — Memorial Day ceremonies Monday in Bremen honored all those involved in any armed conflict, at home and abroad.
The community, local VFW and American Legion members including their associated organizations such as the Ladies and Men’s Auxiliaries, gathered at both the Yellow River bridge on Center Street and the local cemetery to honor those that offered their time and often, their lives, to our nation’s armed services. Those recognized included those those classified as missing in action, prisoners of war, the Women’s Relief Corps., the American War Mothers, and all the armed services organizations. In solemn tribute, VFW Post #8972 3rd District Commander Rick Hardy said the event was “to honor a solemn tribute to all our comrades wherever they may rest.”
Twice Monday a firing squad filled the air with memorial shots and a trumpeted version of “Taps” played in solemn respect of those no longer living. The ceremonies are held annually by the local service organizations.
