VFW Post to Host Memorial Day Ceremony


Gerald Decker, Founder, President

The event will be held at Brunswick Riverwalk Park 580 River Road, Belville, NC 28451


VFW National says, “The freedom we enjoy was paid for at the expense of the lives of American military men and women, and with the tears of those whose lives were changed forever by the loss of a loved one. We owe them a debt that can never be repaid, but as freedom-loving people it is our duty and responsibility to recognize their service, honor their devotion to duty, and mirror that devotion by doing whatever it takes to ensure their sacrifice will forever be remembered.”


To remember those who served to preserve those freedoms, Leland VFW Post 12196 will host a Memorial Day Ceremony at 9 am on May 29 at the Veterans Memorial at Belville Riverwalk Park. A wreath will be laid at the Veterans Memorial in honor of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. We will also place a rose for each of our departed comrades. The public is invited to join us for this event. Please bring a rose to offer in remembrance of your departed family members.
