Veterans from Emmaus Post 191 honored

On May 11, the Emmaus American Legion Charles Henry Schaffer Post 191 hosted a Post Everlasting memorial ceremony. The 24 posts in the American Legion 14th District of Pennsylvania hold the ceremony each year.

The district encompasses posts in Lehigh and Berks counties. The site of the ceremony was the Emmaus Veterans of Foreign War Post 7088.

The memorial ceremony is held once a year to honor deceased Legion members. Each post commander reads aloud the names of the deceased members. After the post commander reads the name of the deceased member, a bell is rung.
