The ceremony at the Ennis Veteran’s Memorial was held immediately following the Ennis Fourth of July Parade. This year’s ceremony featured the Shining Thistle Pipe Band from Helena. This year marked the 10th anniversary of the memorial.
The Ennis Veteran’s Memorial is the only one in the nation commemorating all those who honorably served during time of war or peace, living or deceased, and resident or nonresident.
