MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Mid-South is remembering veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Ahead of Memorial Day, the “Military Retirees of the Tri-State Area” honored past members that served both their country and their communities.
Five honorees were recognized Wednesday by fellow veterans and service members.
Organizers said it’s just one way to show their appreciation.
“Being a veteran myself, and being able to honor those that came before me and have done significant sacrifices to make it possible for me and others coming behind me – we say thank you for their dedication, service and sacrifice,” said Ronald Levy, President of Military Retirees Of The Tri-State Area.
The organization helps veterans by offering eligibility services for their families.
They also provide much more, like youth education scholarships, voter transportation, emergency food assistance, and holiday baskets.
