Big Shoal




Post 626 has an agreement with the City of Gladstone where we will decorate the cemetery in a patriotic manor three 

times a year. Memorial Day, The 4th of July and Veteran's Day.

In 2014 Post 626 along with VFW Post 10906 purchased and dedicated a flag pole for the Cemetery which was installed by the city.

Bennett & Dennis Herrick Memorial American Legion Post 626

The Post is responsible for lowering the flag to half staff. Here we are doing it for Police Officers Memorial Day in May, Patriot Day on 9/11 and Pearl Harbor Day on Dec 7th.

There are eight Veterans buried here dating from the Blackhawk wars, the war of 1812 and from both sides of the Civil War. One is on record as having served on both sides. A brochure is available on the map kiosk.
