Memorial Day

West Point American Legion Post #70 Commander Steve Schwer stands at attention while Legion member Dean Lauritzen plays “Taps.”

Even though Memorial Day programs were not held this year, West Point’s Legion and VFW posts held brief Memorial Day observances Monday, placing wreaths at the two cemeteries, followed by the three-gun volley salute and “Taps.”

They also placed a wreath and raised a flag at St. Joseph’s Hillside Villa.
