GENERAL:  Medford VFW Post 7677 has a seventy-year tradition of participation in multiple local community parades and ceremonies over the three days of the Memorial Day Weekend.  In addition, the Post regularly conducts brief memorial services at various cemeteries around Burlington County which contain veterans’ graves.  In support of these activities, the Post has maintained a ceremonial unit composed of elected officers, Color Guard, firing party, chaplain, Auxiliary members, Junior ROTC and Civil air Patrol units  and our volunteer buglers.  The Post maintains ceremonial rifles and a supply of blank ammunition and procures appropriate floral wreaths for presentation at these ceremonies.  The Post also requests a supply of memorial flags (black tip) from the Burlington County Veterans Service Office for placement in veteran grave markers. The parades and ceremonies staged by our local communities over the Memorial Day Weekend are a positive and welcome indicator that patriotism is alive and well and a fine example for our younger generation.  Our continued, enthusiastic participation in these activities is a worthy objective which contributes mightily toward the "Purposes of Our Corporation” mission.  Supported communities will normally request our services by formal letter, email or phone call to the Post in advance of the weekend.     Formats for individual community parades may differ and we adapt to the local procedure.  Our basic memorial service for a cemetery or monument consists of a prayer, rifle salute and the playing or singing of Taps.  Uniform for the weekend is the summer uniform which is white shirt, black trousers and VFW or Auxiliary cap.  A total of eight floral wreaths will be required.  Following is a set of basic guidelines for the day to day conduct of our Memorial Day Weekend mission:
