Post 5331 Cedar Hill & District 8
Post 2657 Fulton
VFW Post 2657 and Auxiliary and around 20 people were at Hatton-McCreadie I-70 overpass from 1-2 on October 21, to support we Stand for our Anthem. Within 30 minutes the Sheriff showed up. I don’t know what he said but after a few minutes he left. Then about 10 minutes later the Highway Patrol showed up and told us that he had had a complaint and we were blocking the road. We were all behind the white lines, he then said that this was a distraction for the people driving below, ask us how long we were going to be there. Lucky for us we had our city alderman there and he did all the talking, we told him we were only going to be there until 2, but he stayed parked until we left.
