HONORING THE FALLEN

 

Maggie Hadden and Christianna "Sweet Pea" Halphen at the Cedar Hill Cemetery

For the Memorial Day weekend Mr. Richard Rielley from Aztec VFW Post 614 took current 4-H members Maggie Hadden with La Plata Blue Ribbon and Christianna "Sweet Pea" Halphen with Showtime 4-H Club out to honor our soldiers no longer with us. On Saturday, May 27, at Cedar Hill Cemetery, each soldier's grave received an American flag atop a small white cross, symbols of remembrance. The headstones, name plates and military history were explained to the 4-Hers as they worked. The 4-Hers felt it a privilege and honor to place these memorials on the graves of our fallen heroes. The flags flew all weekend until the three returned on May 30 to remove them.
