Photos: Sidney Memorial Day Service

The town of Sidney paid tribute to fallen military servicemen and women during a Memorial Day Service Monday, May 31. 

Nearly 150 people turned out for the event. Event organizer and Cheyenne County Veteran's Services officer Fred Wiedeburg told the crowd it's one of the largest they've had for the event. 

The keynote speaker was retired Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Bobby Martinez. He is now a deputy County Sheriff for Cheyenne County. Lucy Stickley performed the ceremonial laying of the wreath. 

Elizabeth Weimer provided her renditions of the national anthem and God Bless America while Kyle Larson gave the invocation and benediction. 

The firing squad was led by retired Army National Guard Master Sergeant who also performed taps.

After the service, many wandered the cemetery to view the graves and pay respects to veterans buried on the grounds.
