Memorial Day in Fishtown

Historic Palmer Cemetery

The ceremony was small and solemn. Nearly one-hundred people attended and the American Legion Elm Tree Post No88 gave full honor to the fallen soldier's that served our nation in combat.
The silence of the crowd, as our national anthem was sung, remained through a three salvo salute by four Honor Guardsmen and a very old and worn recording of Taps.
The speakers refrained from exploiting the moment and never once lost sight that this day was Memorial Day.

  The new 26tth Police District Commander addressed the moment and the crowd.
The singing of our National Anthem.
