Oxford Junction honors Old Glory

Oxford Junction, IA

Residents of the small, rural community of Oxford Junction, Iowa, have always been patriotic and for the past 103 years Wapsie Post 473 has been in the forefront of displaying and honoring our American flag. Displaying flags in the town's cemetery when commemorating Memorial Day is a prime example. Post 473 Legionnaires line the road through Mayflower Cemetery with flags designated for deceased veterans, with their nameplate at the bottom of each flagpole. Smaller flags are also placed in the war-era grave markers near the tombstone of every veteran.
