Next Monday, the nation will once again take time out to honor its veterans, a tradition that America has observed for 140 years.
Memorial Day ceremonies will take place at Grove Hill Cemetery at 11 a.m., beginning with a welcome by Col. Roger C. Green Jr., Army (ret.), post commander of VFW Post 1179.
After Jim Morris of Post 1179 delivers the invocation, the speaker will be Col. Ron Turner, an Iraqi war veteran and currently the chief of staff of the Kentucky National Guard.
The placing of the wreath will follow his speech.
