Memorial Day 2015 at Margraten
A group of more than 50 AWON members visited the Netherlands for Memorial Day
services this year, a trip organized by Gerry Morenski.
The AWON wreath, remembering 82 men by name,
was photographed by British AWONer, Angela Christian.
Billie Myers Meeks presented the AWON wreath, and in this photo
is sending a wish up to heaven.
Tom Brewer took this photo of AWONer Barry Barr-Finch at the Margraten wreath.
The gracious folks at the cemetery included Barry's Dad's name in the ceremony.
The ABMC included three AWONers in the video below: board Members Gerry Morenski and Billie Myers Meeks, and a newcomer to AWON, Arthur Chotin. They represent us all.
Many thanks to the ABMC for covering this journey.
