Hinsdale Post honors fallen with small Memorial Day ceremony

A few members of Hinsdale's American Legion Post 250 gathered at Bronswood Cemetery in Oak Brook to honor local residents who died fighting for our country. The annual procession and ceremony at the Memorial Building was canceled this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Boy Scout Troop 8 scoutmaster John Otten hoisted and lowered the flag to half staff while his sons, William and Jack (not pictured), stood by. Joe Craig (at the podium) with rifle squad members J. Sedevy, Ron Wallin and Jim McCormick, honored the fallen with a moment of silence. (Jim Slonoff photos)
