Stith Funeral Home to honor WW II heroes
As America celebrates the dedication of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., this Memorial Day weekend, veterans from Boyle County also will be honored in our community. To thank and honor local World War II veterans for their service and sacrifice, Stith Funeral Home will hold a reunion from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the American Legion Post on Spears Lane.
'We have many hometown heroes that either fought in the war or supported our troops by working in wartime industries on the home front," said Mary Stith Hamlin. "Stith Funeral Home felt it was important to honor these men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom and a brighter future. This reunion is our way of saying thank you to all those that brought hope to the world."
Ann Yager Hamlin has planned a live simulcast of the dedication of the World War II Memorial during the reception and reunion. Additionally, certificates will be presented to all World War II veterans, hometown heroes or their families. Families may call the funeral home at (859) 236-2113 to reserve a certificate for their family member.
