Roy Reed Post 252
The Post 252 is involved with two holidays dedicated to honoring veterans, Memorial
Day and Veterans Day. The Post covers seven cemeteries on Memorial Day and participates
in the Veterans Day program at the High School.
When military rites are given to fallen comrades at funerals, the post will perform
the honor ceremony. The Ceremony includes the Color Guard, Veterans Prayer, folding
of the flag, and the playing of Taps. The Winside High School has provided a students
to play Taps for the past several years.
The Post also sponsors a young man and woman to attend Boys and Girls State. The
Post has sent 67 boys to this event since 1938.
