Veterans for Peace plan Memorial Day display
May/June 2008

Veterans for Peace will be setting up a Memorial Day display for all the U.S. military dead in Iraq and Afghanistan, on Memorial Day weekend, May 24-26. The display consists of a tombstone with each person's name, branch of service, date of death, age, and hometown. Like last year, the display will be along NW 8th Avenue from 34th St. going east. This year, more people will be needed to help because the display will be up all three days, as opposed to just Memorial Day last year. This means a lot more people will be able to see it.

Parking will be at Westside Park (34th Street and 8th Ave.) Volunteers are needed for set up (Saturday, 4 am) and take down (Monday, 8 pm.) and for watching the Display Saturday, Sunday and Monday day and night. To volunteer contact Veterans for Peace at 352 375-2563.
