COMSTOCK–A fun run, a food truck, fireworks, and freedom all to be present at the annual 4th of July celebration in Comstock!
A highlight at this year’s event includes the dedication of the Veterans Memorial Wall immediately following the parade (across from the post office).
The Veterans Memorial Wall has been a longtime work in progress by the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 220. The memorial consists of two walls with hundreds of bricks displaying the insignia of an honorably discharged veteran.
KCNI/KBBN will have the opportunity to speak with Sons of the American Legion Squadron 220 Commander Casey Doggett later this week.
