My small town has a ceremony every year at the local Masonic Lodge for veterans day and memorial day. The local JROTC color guard comes and presents the colors, and they help out with logistics before and after the event. For the veterans day, the high school band plays a few songs, they have a guest speaker (also present during memorial day) and talk about patriotism. During the event, for memorial day, they read off the list of all the fallen military members from my small town in every major conflict throughout history. It is staggering to hear all the names of the fallen. It is great to see such a small town like I live in be patriotic and come together to remember all our veterans during these two events. Thank you everyone for your service.
