Remembering Our Fallen


Commemorating brave locals who gave their lives to defend our country

As Memorial Day approaches, Americans think of the courageous men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in our nation’s armed forces. Though they may be gone from this world, they live on in the hearts of their parents, husbands and wives, and children. They live on in the monuments we construct in honor of them. And they live on in the stories we tell of them.

By honoring their lives, we continue to hold them close, ensuring the public will know more of them than just their names etched in cold stone.

These are the stories of four locals who sacrificed everything to keep us all free and safe, as shared with us by their families. Never forget.
