Starting in 1933 with the original dedication and every year after with few exceptions, Past Commanders of American Legion Post 160 and guests have made their annual trip to Mount Greylock to conduct a ceremony to honor fallen Veterans.

This year’s guest speaker was Mass Department Vice Commander Jodie Pajak who talked about how things have changed in the military and support organizations over time, but that we should not change our commitment to honor all those that have fallen or sacrificed for American Ideals. The ceremony was concluded with a volley of three shots and Taps.
