The Oregon-Brooklyn VFW Post 10272 and Brooklyn-Oregon American Legion hosted a Memorial Day ceremony Monday, May 25.

Members placed a wreath at the World War I monument, honoring those who have lost their lives during battle.

Post Commander Greg Graf played taps in the distance as spectators, standing six fee apart from one another, silently listened. As he played, the American flag was placed at half staff.
