Honor Guard Gun Salute

Veterans Park in Sistersville was the sight of the annual celebration honoring our Veterans. VFW Commander, Don Pickens opened the ceremony reminding those in attendance to not only honor our Veterans on this day but any time we see a Veteran to “thank them for their service.” The Honor Guard celebrated our Veterans with the traditional gun salute.

In addition, a re-dedication, Flag and Pole were placed at Greenwood Cemetery. The original dedication was held on November 11, 1981. Thanks go out to Legioneers Herb McEowen, Ed Camerlin, Russell Weekley, and Rick Hunter for the use of his truck.

Also special thanks to the following organizations Marietta Flag, American Legion Post 67, Sons of the Legioners, Legioners Riders, and Myers Funeral Home – Julie Yonaley and Jeff Moore.
