In honor of the fallen

-A A +A

This year’s Memorial Day community ceremony will be 11 a.m., May 27 at Guaje Pines Cemetery. This year’s theme is “Remembering those who have lost their lives for their country and a special remembrance of Vietnam.”
Memorial Day is a national holiday to thank and honor more than 1,258,000 Americans that have given their lives for their country during wartime and conflicts around the globe defending freedom and way of life. More than 58,000 died in Vietnam and some 1,600 remain Missing in Action in Vietnam. At least 42 million citizens have served in the United States military during times of conflict.
This year’s speakers include four living heroes and residents of Los Alamos who all served in Vietnam during the height of the conflict. They include Leland Lehman, Nick Mezins, Ed Miller and Dennis Hawley.
American Legion officials said it would be an honor to have the community turn out for the ceremony at Guaje Pines. Lunch and socializing to remember the fallen will be at the conclusion of the ceremony at the American Legion Post 90, 1325 Trinity Drive.
