A large crowd gathered at the Colbert County Courthouse in Tuscumbia, Al to honor those fallen in defense of our country. Tuscumbia Mayor Bill Shoemaker gave the opening comments. Invocation by Post #31 Chaplain Bryce Tidmore. A wonderful rendition of the National Anthem was song by Dr. Eric Kirkman. The speaker was Joseph C Bongiovanni. Taps at the end of the ceremony was played by Bugler Malcolm Smith.
Noticeably absent was the USA flags along the light poles coming into Tuscumbia this year.
