Memorial  Day Ceremony Features Retired Army LTC

Posted: Thursday, May 25, 2023

The annual Memorial Day observance on May 29 at noon at the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Columbus Blvd. and Spruce Street, will be one of recognition and remembrance as we honor all those lost in Vietnam, as well as all wars.

Remembrance of the 648 servicemen from Philadelphia lost in the war and recognition of the toll the conflict still takes on the survivors. The Memorial Board will unveil a plaque in memory of those “who served in the Vietnam War and later died as a result of their service.”

The plaque is similar to one installed at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.

Speaker for the ceremony is Eric Stetson, who is the Director of Engagement and enrollment for FourBlock a VSO working to help Veterans and their spouses in their career transition from the military. He is a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel.

Veteran’s Day Ceremony Rescheduled To Sunday 

Posted: Thursday, November 10, 2022

Veteran’s Day Ceremony Rescheduled To Sunday 

The Veterans Day ceremony, scheduled for noon on Friday, Nov. 11, is being rescheduled because of the forecast heavy rainfall and an abundance of caution for those who have trouble getting around.  The event is rescheduled for Sunday, Nov. 13 at noon.  Another deciding factor was the cancellation of the Korean Memorial ceremony held beforehand. The Korean Memorial is also rescheduling to 11 a.m. on Sunday.

The Police Department firing squad and bugler are unavailable on Sunday and will still render honors on Friday, tomorrow at 11 a.m. for those that are interested.

Please help us spread the word.
