Hanover County will honor those who gave their life in our nation’s military service with a Memorial Day ceremony at the Hanover Veterans Memorial on Monday, May 29 at 10 a.m. The Hanover Veterans Memorial is located at Hanover Wayside Park, 8225 Hanover Wayside Road.
Phillip Brashear will serve as the guest speaker. He is the son of Carl Brashear, late U.S. Navy Master Diver and subject of the major motion picture “Men of Honor”. The event will also include the laying of the Memorial Wreath and the reading of names on new bricks added to the Veterans Memorial, as well as music from the Hanover Concert Band.
Dedicated in 2007, the Hanover Veterans Memorial honors Hanover military veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in hostile action from World War I to the present day, and those who have or are currently serving in the Armed Forces.
