  • In recent days we have become aware that their are Veterans in our community that have recently died and have not been provided with an opportunity to receive a military ceremony in their memory.  Chapter 189 of the KWVA does not that this is proper, and have decided to present a small final military ceremony for any Veteran that requests it. If you know of a Veteran that needs a final military ceremony please contact Bob McGuire at 386.323.6401 and we will attempt to get that request fulfilled.
