Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the ceremony was held without the public in attendance. The Chester Bird Post 523 American Legion and West Metro VFW Post 7051 honor guard offered the fallen a three rifle volley, taps, and prayer.
Honor. Remember. Never forget.
Memorial Day 2020
THE MUFFLED drum's sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo;
No more on Life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.
On Fame's eternal camping-ground
Their silent tents are spread,
And Glory guards, with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.
~ Bivouac Of The Dead, by Theodore O'Hara
