SOUTH CHINA, ME — At the South China Veteran Monument ceremony on Monday, Memorial Day, May 30, Ron Emery, left, had the opportunity and honor to help a young veteran display the POW/MIA banner. He did not get his name but noticed his silver spurs. Soldiers serving with Cavalry units (referred to as Troopers) are inducted into the Order of the Spur after successfully completing a “Spur Ride” or for having served during combat as a member of a Cavalry unit. Emery thanks him for his service and his support for POW/MIA.
