“On Memorial Day, we reflect on the service and sacrifice of those who have died to preserve our freedom,” said Board of Clermont County Commissioners President Bob Proud.

On this Memorial Day weekend, a solemn ceremony will be held at the Union Township Veterans Memorial Park, paying tribute to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

On Sunday, May 30, at 2 p.m., Commissioner Proud, State Representative and Colonel Danny Bubp, and Union Township trustee Bob McGee will be part of a program beginning a 24-hour vigil at the park to set up crosses and flags, while reading the names of over 500 war dead from the Cincinnati area.

The event, organized by the Clermont County Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 649, invites loved ones of the deceased to place a flag and cross near the helicopter monument at the park, while his/her name is read.

The 25-acre Union Township Veterans Memorial Park is located on the corner of Clough Pike and Glen Este-Withamsville Road in Union Township.
