Veterans ceremony set for June 7

WARRENSBURG - An annual ceremony honoring local citizens killed in combat has been set for 5 p.m. Monday June 7 at the the Frederick H. Flynn Memorial Park.

The event includes participation by the Warrensburg V.F.W. Post No. 4821, the local American Legion Post No. 446 and representatives from the various U.S. service branches.

Scheduled to participate are representatives of the Army National Guard, U.S. Marines, U.S. Air Force and the Warrensburg Fire Department honor guard.

Weather permitting, there will be a flyover during the memorial service - in vintage aircraft - by the Adirondack Air Force, or town board member John Alexander and friends.

The ceremony may include a convoy of military vehicles representing the New York-Penn Military Vehicles Collectors Club. This presentation was arranged for the 2009 service by Don Bagwell of Warrensburgbikeweek.com, co-organizer of the ceremony.

"Please plan on joining us as we celebrate for and memorialize our lost friends and family." Bagwell said.
