A day to remember

Don Skouby, of De Soto, prays Monday during the Memorial Day service at Woodlawn Cemetery in Carbondale. Skouby, an army veteran, along with other members of the VFW Teeter-Watson-Carter Post 2605, raised the flag during the ceremony and provided a 21-gun salute. One of the first Memorial Day services in the country was held at Woodlawn Cemetery April 29, 1866.
