Memorial Day 2017

All are welcome to attend the annual KCVAO State Veterans Cemetery Memorial Day services at Ft. Dodge, Ft. Riley, Wakeeney, and Winfield.

     Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while serving in the United States armed forces. In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries. All four Kansas state cemeteries hold services to honor our fallen heroes. The following are the start times at each cemetery:

Ft. Dodge -- 11:00 AM
Ft Riley -- 11:00 AM
Wakeeney -- 10:00 AM
Winfield -- 10:00 AM
