Our memorial is now on the path to reality. The Town Council met on Monday, April 22, 2013, and approved the re-petition of our Veterans Memorial at Chapel Hill.
Many veterans and interested parties were there to support the proposal. Russell Edmister and Jams Stallings of the Veterans of Foreign Wars C. V. Cummings Chapel Hill Post 9100 spoke on behalf of the many veterans and veterans’ groups in our area.
Local media coverage of the meeting can be found on Our Memorial in the News page, located under News above.
This photo was taken as the morning sun rose over Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery. Local veterans from the Veterans of Foreign Wars C. V. Cummings Chapel Hill Post 9100 had just completed their carpeting of the cemetery for Memorial Day. Members then gather to hold a remembrance memorial service.
Have you taken time reflect and to remember the sacrifices of our local citizen soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen? There are many interred at the cemetery and it seems like one out of five graves contains a veteran. There are privates, corporals, sergeants, sergeant majors, lieutenants, colonels, generals and admirals laying side-by-side overlooking Fordham Blvd and US 15-501.
