By Joe Hare, VFW Post 6097 Commander
Memorial Day services at the VFW Post 6097 Hall and Monument for 2012 was a much better attended program in 2012 than in many years past. Attendance of guests was approximately double what it had been the year before.
There were nearly 50 in attendance to hear Fred Troutman deliver the principal address. This year for the first time, because of the oppressive heat, most of the program was held inside the hall.There were also more members of the growing host organization in attendance.For yesterday's program, Post Vice Commander Kris Knight, was the Honor Guard Commander.
Rifle Squad members were Brad West, Curtis Hardwick, Jim Smallwood, Kenneth Scott, and Ronnie Holt.
The Flag Bearers were Johnnie Biggs and Orvis Grider
Charles Green was the bugler.
Bro. Bill Davenport serves as the Post Chaplain.
