But ahead of the federal holiday, there was a special ceremony Thursday at Camp Johnson in Colchester. The Vermont National Guard held its annual wreath-laying ceremony, including music by the 40th Army Band and cannon salutes. Gov. Peter Shumlin and Maj. Gen. Steven Cray, the adjutant general of Vermont, spoke.
