American Legion Post 87 held a Memorial Day ceremony to honor local veterans Monday.
Tom McGrew, member of the local and state post, was the guest speaker.
A cross was dedicated in honor of Lance Cpl. Matthias Hanson who died Feb. 21 of combat-related injuries in Afghanistan.
Hanson, the 20-year-old son of Mary and Larry Huff of Hodgenville and Lowell R. and Cynthia Hanson Jr. of Buffalo, was hit by enemy fire and died while being airlifted to a military medical facility. His deployment to Afghanistan was his first assignment outside the country. He had been overseas about 40 days.
