Chaplain Jerry Abbe offered a prayer and read the roster of deceased veterans from all wars. Members of the GMG Speech Team presented patriotic readings. Dillon Slingluff read “The Ragged Old Flag”. Chandler Kendall and Korey Sederburg read Red Skelton’s explanation of “The Pledge of Allegiance”. Members of the Auxiliary were present for the “Laying of the Wreath”.
