According to FD / PGK Charlie Rowe, this Memorial Day ceremony is especially important. He continued, “Remembrance Day is a day to commemorate veterans who died in war, but there is often a barbecue that is celebrated differently. The real meaning of Memorial Day is the ultimate sacrifice. I think it’s about praising veterans. Since the Revolutionary War, Lynn has brought in 960 veterans and veterans who have lost their lives for the country. “
25 people attended this first memorial service in honor of Lynn’s dead veterans.
