Community honors those who have served

by Ross Haney
The Carlisle posts of the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign War gathered a crowd at the Carlisle Cemetery's war memorial on Sunday, Nov. 9 to honor all those who have worn our nation's military uniforms. The service was an emotional tribute to those who have paid the ultimate price to protect our freedoms.
Cub Scout Pack 50 opened the ceremony by leading those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Bro. Rocky Wallace of the Carlisle Methodist Church then gave a short sermon about the sacrifices that our heroes make to protect and preserve what we hold as fundamental rights. He feels that our soldiers fight to protect us, just as God protects us throughout our lives. He closed with prayer.
The American Legion then proceeded with a traditional arms salute, and a bugler began to play Taps, a military call played at the funeral of a fallen serviceman. The Legion and the VFW then placed two wreaths in front of the memorial.
In preparation for the service, Jamie Berry, a senior at Nicholas County High School, added flowers and American flags to each grave to honor the fallen soldiers. Jamie also helps her grandmother decorate many tombstones throughout the cemetery every Memorial Day. We thank Jamie for this tribute - her hard work has not gone unnoticed.
Sunday’s Veteran’s Day service was a powerful tribute an exceptional way to help us to remember our local citizens that have served and lost their lives protect the freedoms that we too often take for granted.
