Kerr County elected officials invite the public to a May 29 Memorial Day program honoring those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to this country while in service in the United States Armed Forces. The program is at 10 a.m. at the War Memorial in front of the Kerr County Courthouse, and U.S. Army Reserve Major General Robert L. Walter, Jr. will be providing the keynote address. Jeff Harris, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, is master of ceremonies.
Kerr County elected officials and the Kerr County Veterans Service Office will be presenting wreaths at the memorial. Local organizations wishing to present their own wreaths in remembrance of our nation’s fallen heroes are asked to register just prior to the ceremony’s start and to bring a wire stand for their wreath.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating due to limited seating available on site. In case of inclement weather on the day of the program, the event will be moved indoors to the Hill Country Youth Event Center located at 3785 TX-27, in Kerrville.
