MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY
Monday May 31, 2021
Our Flag does not fly because the wind blows it;
It flies with the last breath of
every Soldier who died defending it.
The Hailey Memorial Day Ceremony will take place this year on Monday – May 31st, 2021 at 11:00 am. We will honor our veterans and active military along with everyone who is keeping us safe in these troubling times. There will be a Flyover by the 124th Fighter Wing from Gowen Field flying 4 A-10 Warthogs over the ceremony and on up the Wood River Valley. Together we will celebrate our strong and caring community of Hailey and the Wood River Valley.
We want our fallen service members to know we will never forget their ultimate sacrifice.
We will decorate over 420 veterans’ graves with flags and carnations again this year on Friday, May 28th, 2021.
On Monday, May 31st, we will place a Memorial wreath on the Blaine County Veterans monument in the Hailey Cemetery and display the Armed Services individual flags from Dawn to Dusk. We will host a ceremony at 11:00am in honor of those who gave their lives to their country.
More details to come. Masks will be required and safety measures taken. Thank you.

A Tremendous Thank You to Idaho Proscape, Mr. Wayne Burke, Tad Mulum, and the Board of the Hailey Cemetery Maintenance District for the beautiful cemetery we have today.
In our minds we will always also remember the four vintage military fighters from the Warhawk Air Museum of Nampa, Idaho for being there ready to perform a flyover and the “missing man” tribute at approximately 11:30 am weather permitting for several years.
Many thanks to the pilots that would have graced our skies with the two P-51 Mustangs and two Curtiss P-40’s in the past. The pilots and aircraft providing the flyover :
1. Mark Peterson – P-51 Mustang Pilot
2. Jim Thomas – P-40E Kittyhawk (Shark mouth on front) pilot
3. John Hinton – P-40N Warhawk (Parrot head on front) pilot
4. John Maloney – P-51 Mustang Pilot
The Warhawk Museum of Nampa, Idaho is an outstanding military history museum in Nampa, Idaho for known for it’s historic Warbirds and war planes and personal memorabilia from World War 1, World War ll, the Korean War, The Vietnam War commending and preserving Veterans’ histories.
Always and Forever .. Remember the fallen|
