Memorial Day Weekend 2019

The members of Detachment 296 were very busy over Memorial Day weekend. As per tradition the Emmaus Veterans Committee Honor Guard gave a rifle salute and played taps at several of the local cemeteries. They made sure to pay special honors to a past member of our detachment, Henry Brokate. Hank was and continues to be a very important member to our detachment. His leadership and knowledge was second to none, and Hank will always hold a special place in all our members hearts. We also participated in the Emmaus Memorial Day Parade, with several of our members carrying not only our colors, but those of other units as well. Several of our members were also apart of the Emmaus Honor Guard that provided a rifle salute and Taps after the parade. - Commandant Jason M Smith
