This day is special and it is always good to be with family and friends when attending these events.
It is even more special when you are with your Legion Family participating in the event.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate this with rain all day long. Many outdoor ceremonies had to be cancelled and others were cut back. The pictures linked below are all I have received from our local posts.
