JELLICO, TN (WLAF) – Even though the sun will be shining on Saturday, the temps will be in the 20s with wind chills holding in the single digits and snow on the ground, the American Legion Post 154 Jellico Honor Guard has a couple of fallen comrades to honor one last time.
At 11am, the Jellico Honor Guard will take part in a family memorial service at Pleasant View Cemetery just across the state line at Saxton, Kentucky. U.S. Navy veteran Jack Slover will be laid to rest. Slover was 82 years old.
World War II veteran Wesley Lay’s interment is 2pm at the Douglas Cemetery at Wooldridge. Originally from Wooldridge, the 98-year old Lay served in the U.S. Army.
Each military ceremony includes Taps, a 21-gun salute, the folding of the flag and presentation of the flag to the family. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 01/29/2022-6AM)
