Veterans Grove Memorial



I recently visited the Veterans Grove Memorial in Old Lycoming Township, Lycoming County.

It is a very simple but moving and solemn Memorial Day tribute to the service men and women who gave their all. The thought occurred to me that the display could even be improved if the military service emblems were arranged in their proper order. Department of Defense Directive 1005.8 prescribes the order in which military service flags, seals, emblems and insignia are to be displayed from the viewer’s left to right. The order is US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, US Air Force, and US Coast Guard.
