Third Anniversary for Doughboy Ceremony

Share this post

Today is a very special day for Hobart Marine Corps League Howlin Mad Detachment 93. Not only is it the last Friday of the month when they would read the names of fallen soldiers lost this month, the day also marks the third anniversary of this ongoing ceremony. Today at 5 pm they have a list of 36 names to be read at their monthly ceremony near the Doughboy Statue at 7th and Main in Hobart. Their three-year total of names has reached 1,495.

The names will be read out loud, a memorial bell will rung for each name. Their Honor Guard will then fire off a volley of three rounds, followed by the playing of "Taps" and a closing prayer from their Chaplin. The public is invited.

“Doughboy” was a term used to describe U-S infantrymen of the American Expeditionary Force during World War One.
