About 75 people gathered at the Chino Valley Cemetery for a Memorial Day ceremony hosted by American Legion Bobby Bisjak Post 40 to honor more than 200 service members interred there.
The day started with members of the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Brownies, and Daisy Scouts placing U.S. flags on the graves of local area service members. The formal ceremony followed.
Vince Carroll, American Legion Post 40 First Vice Commander, was the master of ceremonies for the event. He thanked family and friends of the interred service members for attending the ceremony. Also in attendance were members of the American Legion Riders and American Legion Auxiliary, both from Post 40.
After the opening remarks the names of the 207 buried military members were read by Vince Carroll, Beverly Sanchez of the American Legion Riders, and Vickie Daniel of the American Legion Auxiliary. At the conclusion of the name reading Chuck Scott, American Legion Post 40 Honor Guard member, played Taps. As a special thank you to those in attendance they were invited to Post 40 for a potluck lunch that was hosted by the Post's Auxiliary.
