Remember the reason for the holiday.

In 1868 our country set aside one day to “…cherish tenderly the memories of our heroic dead who made their breast a barricade between our country and its foes”.


Monday morning at 9 a.m. there will be a Remembrance Ceremony at Brook Run Park to honor all veterans that have served this great country. The guest speaker is Dunwoody resident Denis L. Shortal, Brigadier General, USMC, retired, a friend of mine whom I respect and admire on many different levels.

Also attending the ceremony will will be DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones.

Memorial Day Ceremony
Monday 9 a.m.
Brook Run Park Auditorium
4770 N. Peachtree Rd.
Dunwoody, GA 30338

Unbelievable.

The press release leads, in caps, that Vernon Jones is receiving an award, from a board he created (?), then it gets around to mentioning that the service will honor veterans.

This shameless clown wants to be a US Senator???
