Veterans to observe Memorial Day

Veterans to observe Memorial Day

Members of Weakley County veterans’ organizations will observe Memorial Day at 11 a.m., May 26, at the Weakley County War Memorial on the Courthouse Square in Dresden.
Americans pay tribute on Memorial Day to those who fell in battle defending our country. The observance had its beginnings following the Civil War when Southerners marked the graves of those who died fighting for the Confederacy. Today, we honor all of America’s war dead.
All veterans present will salute their fallen comrades and ask that all of Weakley County citizens pause to remember America’s fallen sons and daughters on this upcoming Memorial Day.
