MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE

AIR FORCE | ARMY | COAST GUARD | MARINES | NAVY

Memorial Day is a special day for those of us who have served in uniform.  It is more than a company holiday or an excuse for a three day weekend.  It is a solemn day to remember those veterans who have died and for us to take a few moments to remember their service to our country.     

Members of American Legion Post 291 have asked that a fallen veteran, no longer with us, be honored on a Memorial Day tribute page. 
The American Legion

These veterans are no longer with us but their sacrifice should not be forgotten.
