Thank you for the wonderful article helping to get the word out about or free event. We are hoping to see alot of families out enjoying the day while remembering our brave women and men in uniform. We are so blessed to have many of Chachi's fellow Marines that will be in attendance as well as his company commander who will speak at the dedication. God bless our troops!!
