Memorial Day across CRST

Every year, Cheyenne River veterans observe Memorial Day on the traditional date of May 30. This year, veterans visited over 35 cemeteries and burial sites and at each one conducted a prayer, 21-gun salute, and played Taps. Look for more photos on page 9a. Photo by Alaina Beautiful Bald Eagle
