There was a posting of colors, National Anthem performance by the Brass Quintet, taps, wreath laying and twenty-one gun salute.

"We have 106 veterans that didn't come back from the State of Georgia. We have 29 now from Chatham County left. It was 30 last year. It's 29 this year,” said VVA Chapter 671 President Joseph Mitchler.
