Hoyleton Youths Place Flags For Departed Vets At Cemetery
Continuing tradition, a group of Hoyleton-area youth placed flags on veteran graves in Hoyleton Trinity Lutheran and Hoyleton Zion Cemeteries for Memorial Day 2018.
Warren and Kasten are 2018 Eighth Grade graduates of Hoyleton Trinity Lutheran School.
“These youth care enough about their community to get out and work to improve it, and learn something of its past,” says American Legion member Phil Jones, who organized the event.
Legionnaire Rollan Schnitker placed display flags at the Hoyleton Hoffman Road intersection.
Legionnaire Narvel Slone and Pat Schwengels placed marker flags in Hoyleton North Prairie and Zion North Prairie Cemeteries, all to help remind everyone of the sacrifice veterans from as far back as the Civil War have made to keep America free.
