The first unaccompanied military service for area veterans will be conducted Thursday (Jan. 23) at 3 p.m. at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley.

Each month, the Nevada Veterans Coalition honors deceased veterans with an eulogy, a 3-volley salute, the playing of Taps and presentation of the U.S. flag.

Every month on the fourth Thursday, the NVC has an unaccompanied service for veterans.

During the December service, the NVC honored Army veterans Cpl. John Masic and Spec. 4 David Odegaard. Their remains were interred at the columbarium.
