For American Legion Post 62 Commander Jake Garcia, the idea behind Memorial Day is simple. “It’s to respect and honor the fallen members of the military,” Garcia said. Craig and Moffat County residents will have several chances to pay those respects this holiday weekend. The first opportunity will come today during the Grand Olde West Days parade. Setup for the parade starts at 3 p.m. in the parking lot of Craig Middle School before officially beginning at 4 p.m. The route runs down Yampa Avenue, turns right onto Victory Way and right on Ledford Street before ending at Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab.
