Memorial Day Program: Honoring The Fallen At The Wall South

May 29, 2017

Hundreds of people gathered at Veterans Memorial Park in Pensacola Sunday afternoon to honor those that have given their lives for their country.

The event featured the reading of 140 names that were recently added to the Wall South, a half size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington. Both walls now contain the names of 58,315 service members lost 5th tv during the Vietnam conflict. The names of the 140 were added due to the redefining of combat missions or areas, and because of new information and records.

Guest speaker was retired Navy Cmdr. Scott Moyer, a former Blue Angel pilot that was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for combat missions in support of Operations Desert Storm and Southern Watch.
