Honorable. Memorable. Patriotic. Those are three words that will most likely describe Sunday, May 29, 2016 in Preston, Minn.

Now home to a $10.1 million 169-acre state veterans cemetery dedicated to honoring those who have served our country, Preston has earned another distinction besides “Minnesota’s Trout Capital”. The Minnesota Veterans Cemetery in Preston, Minn. is the largest veterans cemetery in the state, serving veterans for more than a 70-mile radius of Fillmore’s county seat.

And, on this special Sunday before Memorial Day, the staff at the new cemetery will be hosting a dedication ceremony.

According to Cemetery Supervisor Rob Gross, there will be pre-ceremony music by 34 ID Band Brass Quintet starting at 1:30 p.m.

Then, at 2 p.m. the ceremonies will formally commence with a flyover directed by Jerry Kyser with the Minnesota Vietnam Veterans Charity.

Following a welcoming message from Gross, local posts will present a Parade of Flags. And, after the Minnesota Military Funeral Honors Team has posted the colors, Master of Ceremonies KQ98 radio show host Phil Costigan will deliver a message with his captivating voice.

Christ Lutheran Pastor Dan Bredberg will present an invocation, followed by Chuck Amunrud who will lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The event will continue with the “National Anthem”, “America the Beautiful”, and a number of other powerful music selections.

The keynote speaker will be U.S. Representative Tim Walz, followed by a Memorial address from three state officials.

There will be a Blue Star Memorial Dedication right before Kaitlyn Gross sings “God Bless the U.S.A.”.

As the ceremony concludes, the Preston Memorial Rifle Squad will demonstrate a rifle salute while “TAPS” is played.

And, after the Minnesota Military Funeral Honors Team retires the colors, David Swantek, Sr. Administrator of Memorial Affairs for the Minnesota State Veterans Cemeteries will share his closing remarks.

Cemetery Supervisor Rob Gross indicated that they have no idea of what to expect for this event. He said they have been receiving calls from people all over Minnesota who are planning on attending the event.

At this time, they have prepared seating for up to 300 individuals, so they are suggesting that attendees plan on bringing a lawn ch .....
