Memorial Day trip stirs memoriesFlags of the United States of America waved in a light breeze from rows of poles that stretched from the Kennebec cemetery entrance down a gentle slope toward a creek bottom. It was mid-morning on Memorial Day. A color guard marched crisply across the cemetery to halt before a huge wreath. The grass of the cemetery and of the land that reached beyond it toward Interstate 90 was the color of emeralds, so rich under a partly cloudy sky that it hurt the eyes, and I squinted across the prairie. Even in Lyman County, three or four inches of rain in May will keep things green.
