Memorial Day observance

During the weeks leading up to Monday's observance in the Ligonier Valley, volunteer veterans from the Fort Ligonier Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 734 and Byers-Tosh American Legion Post 267 and Boy Scout troops visited 17 area cemeteries, placing more than 1,900 American flags on the gravesites of every veteran buried there.
