The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 990 took part in a Memorial Day ceremony on May 23, remembering those who gave their lives in service to the country. Sponsored by the Just-A-Mere Garden Club, the 7th annual ceremony was held at the Blue Star Memorial in Spivey’s Corner, N.C.
Boy Scout Troop 711 presented the colors and led in the Pledge of Allegiance. Veterans were recognized before gathering in front of the appropriate flag of the branch of service in which they served. “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” were sung by Andi Creech, Miss Spivey’s Corner Outstanding Teen of 2019, and Chapter 990 provided a three-volley salute.
