Memorial Day Services At Mapleview Cemetery, 2013

A beautiful Day May 27, 2013 for the Memorial Day Services at Mapleview to remember and honor those that gave their all for their country.
A nice crowd turned out to show their respect to these men and their families.

This is a picture of the War Memorial that has crosses for all that were KIA through the years.

 Army National Guard Col. Scott A. Campbell gave the Memorial Day Address.  

 It was an exceptional speech and dedication to those that paid the price for our freedom through all the past wars to the present conflicts.  

 One of Crittenden County's few remaining World War II Veterans, Mr. Ronald "Tink" Hicklin, was a familiar face at the program.  Tink is 94 years old, and is still active about town, and also one of Marion's favorite people.

Always a Hello for everyone and always willing to share his memories of years past.
