CASPER, Wyo. — Several of Wyoming’s elected officials made an appearance today at the annual Veterans Day ceremony that took place at the Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery in Evansville.

The observance took place after the bridge leading to the cemetery was dedicated to Casper’s late educator and community activist Leo Sanchez earlier Friday morning.
