BRAIDWOOD--The Braidwood American Legion Koca Post 39 will present the traditional Memorial Day service beginning at 9 a.m., on Memorial Day.

Everyone is invited to attend the service, he said.
The Reed-Custer Band and Chorus will present the National Anthem,
God Bless the U.S.A, and God Bless America.
"A medley of service songs will recognize each branch of service," Canup said.
