Also represented were the American Legion Post 441 of Bellingham, the American Legion Post 158 of Madison and the Disabled American Veterans Milbank-Sisseton Chapter 19. The practice centered around the rendering of Honors and Ceremonies at a veterans funeral including the three rifle volley salute and the proper display of the Color Guard flags. An excellent dinner was provided by the Marietta American Legion Auxiliary.
