Memorial Day 2016

This year we had a great Memorial Day with all those involved. Saturday, we had a great turnout at Mesa Cemetery of about 75 people to help with getting the flags out on the veteran gravestones. And on Monday morning we had a great ceremony that was organised by our own Chaplain Frank ‘Gunny’ Alger. A big Bravo Zulu to you comrade on a job well done!
