Memorial Day
Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend that marks the beginning of summer. To many people, especially the nation's thousands of combat veterans, this day, which has a history stretching back all the way to the Civil War, is an important reminder of those who died in the service of their country.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

In Loving Memory of Richard Joseph Herrin Sr.
He received two purple hearts for his service in WWII.

In loving Memory of Anthony Alafonso ,USMC
