On Aug. 28, a group of members from American Legion Post 216 and VFW Post 10725 held a small ceremony to honor the 13 U.S. service members killed Aug. 26 in Afghanistan. One flag was raised in the southwest corner of Peterson Park for each fallen service member. Names were read; a bell ring followed each name. A three-round volley was fired from four M-1 rifles and “Taps” was played.
