Memorial Day ceremony Monday in Murfreesboro


Pike County Veterans Service Officer Bob Williams reports that a Memorial Day Ceremony will be held at the War Memorial located on the Pike County Courthouse square Monday, May 27, 2024 starting at 10 a.m..

He encourages all veterans, citizens, and visitors of Pike County to take about an hour out of your day to assemble as Americans to remember those who “Gave Their All” to preserve our Nation’s freedoms.

Pike County will honor the 78 Pike County residents who lost their lives in combat from WW-I, WW-II, Korea, and Vietnam. “We will also unite together in the spirit of patriotism with Americans across our Nation to remember our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms spanning from the Revolutionary War through our present War on Terrorism in the Middle East,” Williams said.

“Since the time of the Revolutionary War, our Nation has never been closer to losing our freedoms as we are today!

“For any American to take this day, which has been designated as a day of remembrance, and not remember our war dead are simply not true Americans. We must reserve this moment of time to come together as “One Nation Under God” to honor those who gave everything so that we could be free. Freedom isn’t free, and lest we forget those who paid the price.”
