[ARCHIVED] Memorial Day Ceremony

A Memorial Day ceremony to honor the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who lost their lives in service to our country will be held on Monday, May 28, 11 am at the Battle Ground Veterans Memorial located at Kiwanis Park, 422 SW 2nd Ave in Battle Ground. 

Thirty-one local sons who died in service, and whose names are engraved on the wall of the memorial, will be remembered and honored with a reading of their names. 

New to the memorial this year are an additional 16 commemorative bricks installed at the foot of the memorial's wall.  The bricks are purchased by family and loved ones to honor any veteran, living or deceased, and display the veteran's name, branch of service and dates of service. Commemorative bricks are installed annually just prior to Memorial Day.
