Memorial Day In The Big Sky
Memorial Day and Memorial Day weekend in the Big Sky! Here in the Golden Triangle, the Conrad VFW/Auxiliary Memorial Day services are scheduled at the Hillside Cemetery Monday morning at 11. In case of rainy weather, those services will be conducted at the VFW building in Conrad. A reception will follow the services. To our east, Memorial Day services with graveside services will take place at the Joplin Cemetery at 10 Monday morning and at the Chester cemetery an hour later at 11. Here at the radio station, we'll be saluting our local soldiers ON THE AIR who have given their lives fighting for our country. You'll be hearing names of soldiers from the Shelby, Sunburst, Kevin, Sweetgrass, Valier, Cut Bank, Conrad and Browning areas. These guys paid the ultimate sacrifice in World War 2, Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan. This "On The Air" remembrance on Memorial Day will be brought to you by the American Legion Posts at Sweetgrass and Galata, the VFW Posts at Shelby and Sunburst and of course, the Veterans Memorial Flag Committee. We have close to 50 names to share with our listeners on Monday. As I look over this lists of names and wars, I can't help but think we should not only think of these men on Monday, but also throughout the days and years to come.
