Aline “Sybil” Holland grew emotional Wednesday when members of the VFW Post 2326 Honor Guard handed her a red carnation in honor of her late husband, John, who served in the National Guard and U.S. Army.

“It just really kind of hit me right here,” said Holland, 95, tapping her right hand over her heart. “I was thinking about John, just going back to all the old memories.”
