Nothing stops Post 1980, Woodland Park, Colo.

1980 - Woodland Park, CO

Never let it be said that a mere pandemic stopped Post 1980 of Woodland Park, Colo., from their obligation of honoring the fallen by placing flags on veterans' graves. On the Saturday before Memorial Day it is the tradition of the post to place flags on the graves of veterans buried at Woodland Park, Divide and West Creek cemeteries.
Because of the pandemic no public ceremony was performed on Memorial Day at these cemeteries. However, another tradition of the post is to put up American flags at Lions Park at the crossroads of Hwy 24 & 67 in the middle of Woodland Park. This year it was 25 degrees and it had snowed the night before, but what do you expect when your post is located at 8,500 ft. altitude?
