Holy Cross Cemetery. National anthem - Jill Marie Weingarten.


American Legion Post 44, Marquette, Mich.

Richard Jopling Post 44 - Marquette, MI

It is truly a privilege to perform the national anthem during our local ceremonies and to serve with the amazing individuals of my post. The Memorial Day ceremonies take place at Park and Holy Cross cemeteries. Imagine a woodland setting where stories are told, prayers are shared and the reverent air is cut by the gun salute. It is a deeply moving experience.
