Pastor Jerry Koller is the Spiritual Leader for the ceremony to honor and mourn those military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties.
Honored guests, veterans and distinguished South Haven students will also
participate in the event. The Lakeview Cemetery ceremony ends with the Post 49 Color Guard’s three-rifle volley salute and echo taps.
