Happy Memorial Day!

This Memorial, on the Lawn in front of the Legion, is a replica of Flanders Field.

Flanders Field is a WW1 cemetery in Waregem, Belgium. The crosses represent the graves at the cemetery, the geraniums represent the Poppies that grew wild in the Cemetery and the years on the crosses represent the years our Veterans died.

Our Post home is named after Jesse W. Soby who was killed in action during WW1. This Memorial is not only for Jesse W. Soby but for all the Veterans who served in the military and subsequently passed.
