Kerri: Remember The Fallen

Councilwoman KerriT: My father (Ron Rankin) was forever changed when he came home from the Korean War in 1951. He never forgot his fellow Marines who fell at the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, living his life in a way that would honor all who didn't return home. It was at the core of his being to make sure that every soldier, sailor, corpsman and airman who paid the ultimate price for our freedom were remembered. My father was blessed with a long life well-lived and I honor his memory by remembering on this Memorial Day and every day those fallen heroes of today and yesteryear.

Question: Do you attend any of the cemetery remembrances for veterans on Memorial Day?
