Nine United States war veterans lie in a modest farm cemetery off Jericho Road in East Hampton. Among the soldiers buried there is Matthew Hedges, who fought in the Revolutionary War and died in 1817. On the Sunday before each Memorial Day, a Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion color guard arrives early in the morning to offer a prayer, fire a three-shot salute, and play taps. Traveling by bus and van, the color guard visits all of the town's other cemeteries to pay their respects that day. For several years, John and Wendy Phillips, whose house abuts the Jericho Road cemetery, have hosted friends and neighbors for breakfast and to watch the V.F.W. ceremony.
