Letter: Remembering those who served

To the Editor:

Some Americans have forgotten the true meaning of a holiday that we, as veterans, hold so close to our hearts. For too many, Memorial Day now signifies nothing more than the start of summer and is celebrated with holiday sales. Trips to the lake and shopping extravaganzas have replaced memorial visits, remembrance ceremonies or, simply put, a day to reflect upon all of the luxuries – like freedom – that we, as Americans, enjoy daily.

On Memorial Day this year, the Elburn community gathered to remember those that served this country and paid the ultimate price – their lives. Elburn American Legion Post 630 would like to thank those that made this ceremony possible by their support and participation: Elburn Boy Scout Troop 7; Elburn Cub Scout Pack 107; the 10th Mountain Division re-enactors; the Kaneland High School band, led by Mr. Aaron Puckett; our guest speaker, Elburn Mayor Dave Anderson; Tammy Osborne for reading “In Flanders Field;” and Karen Howard for reading the names of those veterans buried in Elburn. 

We appreciate your help and support. Thank you!

John Reece and John Nevenhoven

Post commander and senior vice commander, respectively, for Elburn American Legion Post 630
