VFW post will honor victims of Iraqi war

Mercury News

A Veterans of Foreign Wars post will hold a ceremony Sunday honoring the dead of both sides of the Iraqi conflict.
Bill Motto Post No. 5888 will place a floral wreath and play taps at the memorial for war dead across from the post office on Front Street. Chris Matthews, the posts chaplain, said only members of the post and family members are invited.
We feel this to be a solemn ceremony and do not wish to make it a public, political event, he said.
After the ceremony, post members will lay a wreath at the Collateral Damage statue near the town clock in remembrance of all the civilians who have died in the conflict.
