Thank you VFW 2735 for coming out to the Isanti Union Cemetery to honor our veterans. The wind was blowing and it was raining. It was 48 degrees and cold, but remembering our veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom was important. The Color Guard and Rifle Squad Stood at attention during the entire service.
I counted over 60 cars parked in the cemetery and another 20 on County Road 5; it was a good turn out on a miserable day.
During the welcome a statement was made, we are here today because our veterans are resting here. That was a very powerful statement.
