The November 2012 issue of Mountain Home Magazine features an article on the members of the Tioga County Honor Guard. Rebecca Hazen(the author) and Beagle Media LLC should be congratulated for publishing the article about this dedicated group who take the time to participate in events that honor Military Veterans .
      The Town of Lindley is especially grateful for their participation in our Armed Forces Day ceremonies-held each May.  In October, 2007, The Lindley/Presho Veteran's Monument was dedicated and every May since 2008, this organization has come to Lindley and  graciously conducted an Armed Forces Day Ceremony to honor the Veterans of the Lindley, New York area.  So along with the people at  Mountain Home, we would like to thank President Bob Leyfert and members of  the Tioga County Honor Guard for their efforts to honor our Veterans. We hope to see them again on Armed Forces Day 2013.
