2017 Memorial Day: Let Us Never Forget

On Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2017, The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW), the 6TH Ohio Volunteer Infantry and the Sister Anthony O’Connell Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (ASUVCW), presented their annual Memorial Day commemoration service in the Civil War section at the beautiful, historic Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati. This year’s special guest speaker was Colonel Benjamin Bigelow, Deputy Division Commander, Great Lakes and Ohio River Division.

As people across the country enjoyed picnics, visited beaches and spent time with family, the SUVCW, 6th OVI, and ASUVCW enjoyed the opportunity to remind Americans that there is a far more significant meaning to Memorial Day that should not be forgotten. Memorial Day is a time to publicly show our respect for those who have lost their lives in defense of our country and to keep alive the memory of their sacrifices. Each year on Memorial Day weekend, Spring Grove Cemetery pays tribute to all interred veterans with 5 days of activities. Our program drew well over 300 people along with TV coverage.

Come join us next year on Memorial Day!

-Dennis M. Brown, Past Camp Commander
