New Programs:  

 ActiVet Program at Rio Vista Recreation Center  

 Veteran of the Quarter  

 

Do you have an old American flag? 

The Peoria Fire Department is now offering a solution to residents while partnering to honor our Veterans.  This new program that is lead by Retired Peoria Fire Captain John Davirro will collect flags from fire stations and deliver them to Heritage Funeral Home.  There the flags will be used to cover the caskets of Veterans who are being cremated, making sure both the Veteran and the flag are properly honored.

Drop-off boxes are located just inside the front lobby doors of the stations and will be available to the public everyday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

   

Remember a Veteran, Thank a Veteran 

 Memorial Day Reflection from the Veterans Memorial Board 

    Memorial Day is set aside for remembering those that died while serving their country. It is not a happy day. It is a day of remembrance of comrades, friends, and family members who have fallen in service to their country. Never wish anyone a Happy Memorial Day, instead thank them for remembering. 

Have a thoughtful Memorial Day!

Russ Lachance 

 

    Memorial Day to me is a reflection.  One of my reflections is about Mr. Castano, a transient veteran whom passed away in earlier parts in the 1990s.  Mr. Castano was buried in the Maricopa County Cemetery with no family or friends acknowledging his passing.  About twenty years later, the Maricopa Field Examiner mentioned to me about Mr. Castano and wonder if he served in the military.  I conducted a research on him and to my surprise, not only did Mr. Castano indeed serve in the military but he was a combat veteran.  Mr. Castano served in the Navy during World War II and participated in numerous battles.  The field examiner disinterred his remains and with help from a non-profit organization was properly buried at the Phoenix VA National Cemetery.  On the day of Mr. Castano’s reburial, droves and droves of veterans’ organizations stood at attention for a fellow veteran they didn’t know; giving him a proper send off.  The last thing I remember of that day was after Mr. Castano’s burial ceremonial  was finished, it began to rain.

    For the previous six weeks I have continued my military education at Ft. Lee, Virginia. Two weeks ago I took time to visit Washington, D.C. over the weekend. There were many exciting and historical places to visit. The National Lawn was a breath taking view, but that was not the most notable experience of my trip. This honor belongs to Arlington Cemetery. Seeing the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Eternal Flame are two must see areas of the cemetery. What made the visit truly notable however was entering Section 55. This section is the designated are for those laid to rest in the early 2000s. As I walked through the rows of those who had made the ultimate sacrifice I realized these individuals were my peers in every sense of the word. Their birthdates were either in the same year or just a few years away from mine. They served in the same combat zone I did. It was a somber experience to be six feet above  your peers. This only reiterated the feeling inside of me that it is my obligation to live my life to the fullest and do all of the things my peers can no longer do. On Memorial Day I encourage you to take the time to reflect on what their sacrifice means and how we can honor the fallen today and every day.

List: Invasion of Iraq, Fall of Bagdad, Saddam's Capture, 1st Battle of Fallujah, Operation Matador, Battle of Ramadi (2007), Troop Surge, Battle of Najaf, Operation Phantom Thuner and Last BCT leaves Iraq. I will have more notes for each of these events when it is placed on the adgenda.
