Park City vets plan poignant Memorial Day ceremony
May 26, 2017
The Park City post of the American Legion plans to hold a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday to mark the national holiday.
The ceremony is scheduled at 9 a.m. at the Park City Cemetery on Kearns Boulevard, the site of many previous Memorial Day gatherings. The event is expected to feature remarks by Dick Gallagher, who is a retired Navy vice admiral, as well as a lineup of others, including Brian Seay, who is the commander of the post, and Glenn Wright, a Summit County Councilor who has long been involved in the American Legion.
The event typically includes solemn words about the nation's fallen soldiers, a flag ceremony and the playing of taps. Past ceremonies have drawn crowds of varying sizes with veterans, families of fallen soldiers and political leaders attending.
