By Tris DeRoma

The Memorial Day weekend starts off early with concerts, golf and other entertainment, but Monday is reserved for what the weekend is all about, honoring war veterans who died protecting our country. 

On Monday, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8874 leads the annual remembrance ceremony at Guaje Pines Cemetery off of Range Road at 11 a.m. 

The guest speaker will be Col. Jamison Herrera of the New Mexico National Guard. 

This year’s theme will be “Honoring the Fallen.” 

The Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps will perform the color guard functions and the opening and closing salutes. 

Father John Daniels of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church will give the invocation and benediction, and Taps will be performed by Randi Moore of the American Legion Riders Post 90, Chapter 19. 

Highlights of the event include a fly over by the Civil Air Patrol, NM Wing, Los Alamos Composite Squadron, state and county proclamations, and a wreath laying performed by members of the county’s service organizations, including the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8874, American Legion Post 90, Knights of Columbus Donald A. Larsen Assembly, Daughters of the American Revolution, The Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts and others.
