Daniel R. Olsen Post 594 visits local cemeteries

MN-0594 - Eagan, MN

On May 23, several members of Daniel R. Olsen Post 594 went to St. John’s and Christ Lutheran cemeteries to honor the veterans interred there. At each cemetery, while practicing social distancing, all post members placed bronze veteran markers and 12”x”18” U.S. flags at each veteran gravesite. Post Commander John Flynn delivered a Memorial Day tribute to veterans of all wars and eras. This was followed by a prayer shared by Post Adjutant Wayne Beierman. Ft. Snelling National Rifle Squad member and Post 594 Past Commander Tom Mullon then sounded Taps to conclude each service. Some family members of those interred attended these services. Special thanks to Post 594 Historian David Hammer for coordinating these humbling and meaningful visits with the respective churches.
