BY NATHAN SCHOLES

With a large crowd gathered at the St. Elmo Veterans’ Memorial, American Legion Post 420 led Memorial Day services on Monday, May 25.

Commander Bill Goodwin led the ceremonies, which included the aid ofthe students and community members.

The St. Elmo Class of 2021 honor students presented the American flag and the high school band played the national anthem and a medley of service songs. Back Room Spirits also provided music, playing “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and “Bang the Drum Slowly.”

The address was given by Altamont native Kurt Becker, who shared tales of local military heroes, including the story of Sgt. Harry McIntosh, a soldier in World War II, and his wife Birzetta, who was from Brownstown.

A letter written by McIntosh to his newborn son in March 1943, was published posthumously in the Vandalia Leader-Union after McIntosh was killed five months later. McIntosh never met his son. Through this story and others, Becker impressed upon the crowd the prices paid by local soldiers and families.
