ABOUT: The PCVM Foundation motto is “Never Forget” and on this Memorial Day the organization inaugurates a full one-hour observance to honor and remember those who have served, and those who have given their lives for this country. Marking the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, we will give a special salute to those service men & women with the first local commemoration of the Korean War (June 20, 1950 – July 27, 1953). Highlights of this memorial are keynote speaker Brigadier General Fred Lopez (Ret), and John Ramieri, president of the Korean War Vets reading a poem. Ceremony consists of a bagpiper and live music featuring vocal soloist, choir and flutist. Korean era aircraft – four T-34s - will do a two fly-over’s and event will conclude with Taps played by Howard Hudson.
