To all who have served in the military- AbesBlogCabin.org salutes you. Also, the same to all those currently serving and to those who will be serving. A special salute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives.
The General Israel B. Richardson Camp (2) of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (Department of Michigan) observed Memorial Day with a service in downtown Birmingham, Michigan. This year a special tribute was given to those veterans present who served in World War II. 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of WW II. Interestingly enough, 2015 also marks the 50th anniversary of the start of the Viet Nam war. Recognition was given to those who died in service in Viet Nam from Birmingham. Members of Camp 2 laid a wreath at the marker honoring the Civil War dead. There were many notable speakers. Mr. Bruce Miller, also a Camp 2 member, chaired the event.
