Memorial Day ceremony planned at Davis Cemetery

The Davis Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949 will host its annual Memorial Day ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday, May 26, at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road.

The ceremony will feature the Davis Brass Ensemble, Davis Children’s Chorale and the Davis High School Madrigals. The keynote speaker will be U.S. Air Force veteran Jerry Adler, one of the few people who has survived the crash of a B-52.

During a terrain avoidance low-level flight in January 1963, extreme mountain wave turbulence caused the bomber’s vertical tail to separate from the aircraft. Only Adler and the aircraft commander survived the crash in rural Maine. The wreckage remains where it fell, a memorial has been placed, and the site is specially honored in January and on Memorial Day.

Adler had been commissioned as a second lieutenant from Cornell University’s Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps in 1953. At the time of the crash, he was a senior navigator and had more than 1,500 hours in the B-52. After extensive hospitalizations, he was retired for physical disability in 1964.

He then went to law school at the University of Houston and to graduate law schools at New York University and Columbia University. He came to UC Davis in 1968 to join the founding faculty of the new law school. He left the faculty in 1974 and practiced law in Sacramento until 2007.

He was elected three times to the Davis City Council, serving from 1980 to 1992, and was mayor in 1990.

The Memorial Day ceremony will be capped off with a free barbecue lunch provided by the Davis Professional Firefighters Union Local 3494. The firefighters also will provide the honor guard, raising the colors for the ceremony.

Davis Boy Scouts will place the flags on the graves of veterans early that morning and pick them up that evening.

A memorial wreath in honor of all deceased military personnel will be placed by World War II veteran Ernie Head and his wife, Marie.

In Woodland, American Legion Post 77 will host a Memorial Day ceremony at 11 a.m. Monday at the Veterans’ Cemetery, accessible off of Cross Street.
