Rosebud-Lott students honor veterans
The graves of 238 veterans interred at Historic Clover Hill Cemetery in Lott were marked with flags in honor of Armed Forces Day on May 19 and Memorial Day on May
27. The flags will remain on display through July 4 and then be removed until Veterans Day. On May 16, members of the Rosebud-Lott National Junior Honor Society and band placed flags on the graves of veterans who had served in the military from the Civil War through the current conflicts in the Middle East. The Clover Hill Cemetery Association Board members wish to express sincere appreciation to the students for their service. Students participating were: Aliyah Walker, Kaitlyn Alonso, Elvia Ibarra, Ashlie Gary, Hunter Sullivan, Emma Ibarra, Hunter Rogers, Ethan Sampson, and Ethan Krieger along with their sponsor Amy Krieger, Band Director David Vuteto and Camber Commeaux. Regardless of an individual’s feelings regarding any armed conflict, all of us can honor the men and women who answered their country’s call to duty. Freedom is not free; it costs the sacrifice of service members and their families. Our thanks to all veterans for enabling the rest of us to live the lives we choose. If anyone knows of a service member whose grave is undecorated in the Historic Clover Cemetery, please contact a Boad Member to help us honor those deserving men and women. Confirmation of their service will see them added to the roster posted at the kiosk and the recognition list.
