Fort McCoy participates in community observances

Phote Alt Tag Goes Here.

Fort McCoy Garrison Commander Col. Steven W. Nott (top photo) and Fort McCoy Garrison Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Allen Raub lay a flower wreath on Perch Lake near Sparta Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2112 during a Memorial Day observance May 27 in Sparta.

Nott (with microphone) was the principal speaker at the Blyton Veterans Park ceremonies. Raub gave a benediction prayer at the park and at the lake programs. The event also included the Sparta Veterans Color Guard, the American Legion and a Veterans of Foreign Wars unit carrying the U.S. flag and auxiliary flags through downtown Sparta.

A bugler played taps and the Veterans of Foreign Wars post firing squad fired a three-volley rifle salute at the Perch Lake wreath-laying ceremony.
