Saturday morning was a time of remembrance and patriotic salute to Greene County's fallen war veterans.

Linton Elks Lodge No. 866, located on State Road 54E, hosted its sixth annual Veteran's Day program Saturday morning.

The program featured the solemn reading of the names of the 164 deceased Greene County military veterans, who served from World I until the present, and died in service to their county.

The names were read by Jerry Abrams, from the Indiana Elks Foundation and Bill Firkins, Past Indiana American Legion Department President.

The Bloomfield Junior-Senior High School NJROTC presented colors and several of the young cadets hung a silver dogtag on each of 164 wood crosses that were erected in front of the Elks' building ---- one for each deceased veteran.

The dogtags were handed to a cadet then taken to the cross, where it was hung. The cadet then took a step back and saluted.

Members of Linton American Legion Post No. 22 rifle corps provided the 21-gun salute for the fallen local heroes while Mike Puckett, director of the Linton-Stockton High School Band, played "Taps" to end the program.
