Memorial Day Ceremony

Monday, May 27, 2019

Please join us for the annual Memorial Day ceremony to honor the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who lost their lives in service to our country.

The ceremony will include the reading of two poems, The Mother of a Soldier, by Folger McKinsey and My Coming Home, a poem written by PFC Larry Manuel to his mother in January of 1968; just two months later PFC Manuel was Killed in Action.

Thirty-one local Battle Ground-area men who died in service will be remembered and honored by a reading of their names. These men, whose names are engraved on the wall of the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial, are sons, brothers, fathers, and once our neighbors. Please join us in remembering and honoring them and all members of the U.S. Armed Forces who died in service.
