MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events throughout the Annapolis Post 7 the grave of every veteran of any of the wars of the country are decorated on this National Holiday. Today, jointly with Annapolis Post 7 Sons of American Legion this tradition is being carried on. If one might attempt to prophecy, in an historical account, Annapolis's veteran organizations will carry on this tradition to its last man to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead.
ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War One. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all veterans. It has been in Post 7. Annually.
