Memorial day is a special day to honor and recognize the men and women that have served our country — many of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice. Starting the Friday leading into the Memorial Day weekend, the American Legion Riders Post 108 started on their journey that has become a tradition for their group — making sure all the Veterans that have served our great nation have flags placed on their final resting place in Amador County.

While the American Legion Riders Post 108 will be the first to tell you that there are many caring individuals that set out to honor the service men and women that have passed, they continue the tradition of making sure grave sites of the men and women that have served our country are honored and remembered — marked and measured. As they paid their personal tributes, they also made sure that the service men and women received proper recognition as they have done since 2009.

The American Legion Riders Post 108  covers Sutter Creek, St. Sava and Volcano while other groups and individuals make sure all the cemeteries in Amador County have flags placed at the grave sites of service men and women that served our country.
