War Memorial Post 30 (Camden, Maine) Memorial Day

War Memorial Post 30 - Camden, ME

Post 30 put an abbreviated color guard together along with a U.S. flag bearer and side guards to celebrate and remember all the veterans in the towns of Camden, Rockport and Lincolnville, Maine.
The post began the day with a wreath laying, rifle salute, prayers and taps at the five Camden war memorials; the Conway Boulder, Village Green War Memorial, Harbor Park Spanish-American and Civil War monuments, and concluded in Mountain View Cemetery.
It was on to Rockport where a wreath was thrown into the harbor and also laid in Amesbury Hill Cemetery, which also included prayers, rifle salute and taps.
The morning events concluded in Lincolnville with wreaths being laid at the War Memorial Park and also thrown off Frohock Bridge at Lincolnville Beach. The rifle salutes, prayers and taps were also done.
Not a lot of folks attended due to the COVID-19 restrictions, but Post 30 could not let that stand in the way of remembering our brothers and sisters who have marched into Post Everlasting.
