Honoring the Fallen: Memorial Day 2024

May 27th @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT


Join us for our annual Memorial Day ceremony, paying tribute to the fallen men and women who gave their lives in service to our Nation.

This year, the Memorial Foundation will honor the memories of three heroes of D-Day with the inclusion of their names on the Memorial’s Necrology Wall; John Norbert “Jack” Murphy, Harvey Edgar Jones, and Richard N. Hoag. The Foundation’s research team determined each died on June 6, 1944, during the Allied invasion of Normandy. Guest readers will share their individual stories of heroism and sacrifice during the ceremony.



View the Fallen Soldier Battle Cross display on the Memorial’s west lawn.

Music by Brass 5. Dedication of the “Tin Cans Save the Day on D-Day” narrative plaque and the latest installment of veteran bricks.

Food truck open following ceremony.

Free admission until noon. Guided tours begin at 1PM. Please bring your own chair. No food in plaza. No pets (service animals welcome).
