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 27 at 10 a.m. The Hanover Veterans Memorial is located at Hanover Wayside Park, 8225 Hanover Wayside Road.

Mr. Richard C. (Rick) Oertel will serve as the guest speaker. He is the former Commander of The American Legion Department of Virginia and a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel. The event will also include the laying of the Memorial Wreath by Mr. Lincoln Stephenson a U.S. Navy World War II veteran, 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 served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces.
