The above event will be held this Friday, September 21st at Central Park Greenfield at 5:30. There is a roofed enclosure at the park so weather’s not a problem. The Hamel American Legion and VFW will provide the Color Guard for this event. I hope you can attend.
I’ve been asked to speak that day because I was listed as “Missing In Action ” in 1966. I made it home and there was closure for my family. Almost 90,000 of our servicemen and women never came home. There’s been no closure for their families and the pain still remains. Please join us for this short ceremony as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Lest we forget!
A number of people are meeting at the Hamel VFW at 4:00 pm and will be carpooling to Greenfield. You are welcomed to join us!
