TELL CITY – Memorial Day weekend services held by the Veterans of Foreign Wars had its guardians of the colors in full regalia hoisting flags and presenting rifles to honor service members lost in conflict.
Francis Kellems of rural Tell City is a veteran of the guard who has been a VFW member since 1950, having served in World War II. He has served on the guard for many years, and said with pride, “I’ve seen every cemetery in the area, and I feel like I’ve been to just about every cemetery in Kentucky.”
