Local veterans honored during ceremony at Moffat County High School
CRAIG — Moffat County High School students gathered Friday, Nov. 9, to honor local veterans and, in the process, learn something of what it means to serve in the armed forces.
Following a video presentation, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 Color Guard demonstrated the proper way to fold a flag as veteran Michael Lausin explained the meaning behind each fold.
Veterans then took the stage for a Q&A roundtable during which they addressed questions posed by students.
The ceremony ended outside, on the football field, where the Color Guard raised the American flag to half-staff, in honor of fallen veterans. This was followed by a 21-gun salute and the playing of “Taps” by MCHS student Chance Davis.
A Saturday soft opening saw the beginning of a new canine hot spot in Craig.
