About 200 people joined veterans from across mid-Missouri for Memorial Day’s wreath-laying ceremony at the Boone County Courthouse in downtown Columbia.
ABC-17’s Joshua Blount from our news partner KMIZ reports the 40-minute ceremony included nearly two dozen wreath presentations. The Columbia Community Band provided music, and bagpipes were presented by the Boone County Fire Protection District’s Pipes and Drums.
A military firearms salute was given by Columbia’s American Legion Post 202 Honor Guard. This is the 96th year for the association Memorial Day tradition.
