Cave Hill Memorial Day Service

The Memorial Day service at Cave Hill was well attended.  U. S. Congressman John Yarmuth was in attendance not only at Cave Hill, but also at the major Memorial Day service at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery latter that day.  Again this year, the VA authorized the John Hunt Morgan Camp to decorate the graves of the CSA soldiers buried within the National Cemetery with CSA battle flags.  Lee Squires, the superintendent of Cave Hill, also authorized the camp to decorate the CSA graves  in the private section of the cemetery.  The main speaker was Colonel Leopoldo Quintas, the Regimental Commander of the 16th Cavalry Regiment at Fort Knox, who gave a very touching address.
