Letter: In honor of fallen heroes

Memorial Day ceremonies will be held May 30 at noon at the Roaring Fork Veterans Memorial, located on the east side of the Pitkin County Courthouse at 506 Main St., Aspen.

The public is cordially invited. A tribute honoring soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division who served in World War II will be presented. Veterans are encouraged to wear items of military memorabilia. Following the ceremony, Aspen Elks Lodge No. 224 is hosting a community picnic at Conner Park next to Aspen City Hall.

Congress is asking all citizens to observe a moment of silence at 3 p.m. in memory of our nation’s fallen military men and women. GrassRoots Community TV, Channel 12, will run interviews of local veterans participating in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project throughout the day.
