As a long-standing tradition, the Town of Milton invites members of American Legion Post 114, local and state officials and a keynote speaker, to to address the community on Memorial Day.
This year, the tradition carried on with Army Captain Lindsey Elder, Boston University's Army ROTC, Charles River Battalion, giving the headlining speech. Milton resident and World War II Veteran also spoke at this year's event along with Cemetery Trustee Joe Reardon, Post 114 Commander-Elect Larry Marino, Board of Selectmen Chair Robert Sweeney and Rep. Walter F. Timilty among others.
Legion member Frank Stout hosted the 2011 observance and members of the band and mixed chorus provided music for the event.
