Memorial Day

Every year on Memorial Day members of the VFW Lilac Post 5815 visit each of the cemeteries of Lombard, Illinois, where veterans are buried. A minister and one or more buglers accompany them. A 21-gun salute is fired at each cemetery to honor our veterans.

The photos below were taken on Memorial Day, May 25, 2009. At that time members of both VFW Post 5815 and American Legion Post 391 joined in honoring these veterans.

The historic Lombard Cemetery at Main Street and Washington Boulevard was rededicated on Memorial Day, May 25, 2009. A large crowd, including Lombard's Village President, William J. Mueller, had gathered for the ceremony, which began at 11:00 a.m. Representatives from Lombard VFW Post 5815 and American Legion Post 391 honored the soldiers buried in the cemetery.

Following this ceremony rededicating the Lombard Cemetery was the ceremony at Lombard Commons rededicating the Veterans Memorial Rock there.
