Tallahasseeans to Remember on Memorial Day

Tallahasseeans to Remember on Memorial Day

The following was submitted by a Tallahassee Reports subscriber:

Memorial Day is a national holiday to honor those who died in combat in defense of America and will be observed this year on Monday, May 30th. 

There were 116,000 military casualties in World War I, 400,000 in WW 2, 33,000 in Korea, 60,000 in Vietnam and 3,000 since the September 11th terror attacks and it is their sacrifice should be remembered on Memorial Day.

Of those casualties 105 were from Tallahassee and they should be remembered not as a number but by their name. These were the sons, husbands, brothers and uncles of our town and they died as infantrymen in Vietnam, fighter pilots in Korea, prisoners of war in Japan, or lost at sea following a submarine attack of their ship in the Atlantic.

They paid the ultimate price for the freedom we enjoy.

On Monday, Memorial Day, step aside from the Bar-B-Que picnic for a moment and thank them for what they did.

  1. Thank you TR and TR subscriber for that memorial.
    Freedom isn’t free.
    The United States is the greatest country in the world. (If you don’t think so, please, move to the country you think is greater.)
    We owe an abundance of gratitude to these MEN.

  2. I’m gonna add my dad to this list, Robert Ervin Consalvi, Vietnam, Air Force. He came home but his service took him from us much too early, due to exposure to Agent Orange.
