June 2, 2011 - Pictured are members of the Leonard Boy Scout Troop 156 as they begin their annual Memorial Day service at Leonard Cemetery by raising the American Flag. The service was held at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 30. Scouts Branden Wood, Trent Isaacs and Seth Blackerby quickly raised the flag to full staff and slowly brought the colors down to half mast while Scout Brandon Scoggins played "Taps" with his trumpet. The crowd of local veterans and family members who attended listened as Korean War Veteran and Leonard Mayor Bill Yoss read off a list of the veterans interred in the Leonard Cemetery and from what war they fought. The Leonard Cemetery contains many veterans who served this country from the American Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam. - Photo courtesy of Scott Blackerby
