(Fremont County, WY) – Lander’s American Legion Don Stough Post 33 hosted the Memorial Day services in both Hudson and Lander on Monday, May 31st.
The Hudson service was held at the Hudson Cemetery at 9:00 AM, and was led by Mayor Mike Anderson.
Mayor Anderson noted how much the veterans in the area do for the town, and thanked them for their tireless efforts. “When I think of what they contributed to our country, then to our communities. We need to quit having divisions, and join together, that’s how we honor them.”
This sentiment was shared by Wyoming Senator Cale Case, who was also in attendance. Before a reading of America the Beautiful, Senator Case stated, “I don’t think they fought for us to be divided.”
The Lander service was held at Mount Hope Cemetery at 11:00 AM, with Lander Council Member John Larsen presenting the ceremony.
Larsen thanked the men and women who gave their lives for our country, as well the veterans in attendance. He also introduced the new plaques installed on the Mount Hope Veterans Memorial, which include the seven seals of the seven military branches.
