On this Memorial Day I remember all the years I witnessed the annual Lyndon Station, WI Veteran’s ceremonies that took place in the village of only 500 people. For such a small town there were a lot of men and women who served in the various branches of the U.S. Military. I in fact have more than a dozen male relatives who served from what we call the Spanish-Philippines War (1898-1902), World War I (1917-1918), World War II (1941-1945) and the Korean War period of the early 1950s.
