The presentation of the colors is a traditional part of the annual Omaha Bar Association Memorial Day program for deceased bar members.

Omaha Bar Remembers Those Who Left Us
Members of the Nebraska judiciary turned out in large numbers for the annual remembrance of those local members of the bar who died between May 1, 2015 and  April 30, 2016. Fourteen were honored in the ceremony at the Omaha-Douglas Civic Center’s Legislative Chambers.
The Benson VFW Post 2503 Honor Guard advanced the colors and Rev. Gregory Baxter, pastor of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, gave the invocation and benediction. Omaha attorney Tom Brantley provided the vocals and was accompanied by pianist Peg Lacy.
Hon. Joseph Bataillon told the full house that among the honored were those who had long and fruitful lives and ones whose lives were cut short. But, he said, all had made a contribution to the legal community and to the cause of justice. Some were very well known to the active bar, like Hon. Michael McGill, James Moylan, John Wilke, William Brennan Jr., and James W. R. Brown. Martin Cahill tragically died in a house fire. All will be missed by family, friends, and the legal community.
