"We must not forget all those who gave their lives for this great country," Post Commander Richard Alan Baxter said. "Everyone in Palisade is invited to join together in this ceremony."

"This ceremony will not only honor those who have died, but those who live and continue to fight for the freedom of this great nation," Baxter said.

"As a nation united, we must remain committed to supporting the men and women of our armed forces as they serve with honor and courage."

The ceremony will take place Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 1 p.m. at the Palisade school gymnasium.
