Veterans' Recognition

Many veterans from the Civil War to current history are buried at St. Trinity Cemetery. We are grateful to Boy Scout Troop 584 and many volunteers who pay their respect for the service of these brave men and women.

Memorial Day Recognition
In recognition of Memorial Day, Boy Scout Troop 584 places U.S. flags on veterans' graves. This recognition usually takes place several days prior to Memorial Day. More information about the date and time for each year's event will be available under the Current Projects tab about a month before Memorial Day.

Medal of Honor
We are also honored to have a Medal of Honor recipient buried at St. Trinity. The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States Governemnt.

Private Louis Hunt served in the U.S. Army Infantry during the Civil War. Private Hunt was awarded the Medal of Honor on July 12, 1894 for gallantry in the charge of the "volunteer storming party". He passed away on March 14, 1901.

Each year, the Medal of Honor Historical Society selects one recipient to have their grave marker replaced. On March 25, 2011, a special dedication service was held at St. Trinity Cemetery to honor Private Hunt with a new grave marker.
