An older woman wiped away tears as the moving sound of taps enveloped a crowd of about 200 for the Memorial Day ceremonies Monday morning at Highland Cemetery. They gathered to remember veterans, deceased and living.

Rob Nelson, commander of Iola American Legion Post 15 noted, “Scripture tells us there is no greater love than a man laying down his life for his friends.”

Speaking from the midst of the burial ground for veterans, Nelson said, “These men and women have proven they are not just friends to Americans, but they are friends to men and women in countries around the world.”
