Hundreds of military Veterans are laid to rest in the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Glennville, Ga. Prior to Memorial Day each year, the tombs of these fallen veterans are decorated with a U.S. flag. Memorial Day was established to remember all American service members who have died in armed conflicts while defending our country.
Honoring our Heroes
3rd Infantry Division Soldiers and leaders joined communities throughout the Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield area in support of Memorial Day.
The installation held an Honoring Heroes Memorial Day Ceremony, May 23, at the Fort Stewart Main Post Chapel, hosted by 3rd ID commander, Maj. Gen. Lee Quintas to honor those who have lost their lives in the service of the nation and recognize Gold Star Families.
Additional Memorial Day community events were supported in Savannah, Hinesville, Richmond Hill, Vidalia, St. Simons, Glennville and Pembroke.
