Today we are a nation at war against terrorism.
The Armed Forces of the United States are fighting the terrorist armed forces in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq and are working hard to protect our country against those who would do us harm.
It is more important than ever that we honor all veterans who have lost their lives in war. Memorial Day weekend events are planned throughout the Surface Creek Valley. These Memorial Day services are open to the public.
