2009.05.28 Jerry Bach: Memorial Day change

Be it known that I, Gerald J. Bach, Sr., resigned as chairman of the Memorial Day ceremonies three years ago. Today I have heard about and been accused of being responsible for the lack of bikes, fire trucks, etc., in the Memorial Day March.

It was the decision of the Morenci American Legion Post #368 to limit the Memorial Day ceremonies to veterans and invited participants only. My only duty in the ceremonies was inviting the high school band to participate and to be sure the two wreaths and flags were in their proper places.

To those of you who are blaming me for the changes, stop defaming my name as I am not the person who was in charge.

– Gerald J. Bach, Sr.
