The plans for the traditional 68th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony
on Monday, May 30, 2022 at Harbor Lawn-Mt. Olive Memorial park
are under way and we are excited to be back to an in-person service
to honor our fallen soldiers.
The Freedom Committee of Orange County (FCOC) veterans have participated in the ceremony since 1995 and co-sponsored the program since 2017.
The service will feature military fly-over, military band,
inspiring speeches and the lunch served to all in attendance.
There will also be wreath laying to recognize the six-Armed Forces services,
WW I, WWII, Pearl Harbor Survivors, “Never Again,” Korean War, Vietnam War,
Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, and POW who gave their last breath in the service of their country. From 1775 to 2020, more than one million Americans have given their lives to ensure the freedoms that we enjoy.
Freedom is not free.
Thank you to our sponsors Dignity Memorial, Stanley W. Ekstrom Foundation,
and The Freedom Committee of Orange County.
This moving tribute to our fallen heroes in 26 American overseas cemeteries was shown at the Pacific Symphony's Hail to Heroes at the Pacific Amphitheater at the Orange County Fairgrounds in September of 2019.
