American music legend, U.S. Air Force veteran Willie Nelson signing ‘Support Our Troops’ guitar for Waterloo raffle
In Waterloo, New York, they celebrate Memorial Day for five days in May, not just one. Most of the country currently celebrates Memorial Day on the last Monday in May, but by old Waterloo tradition it was held on the 30th of May. In order to respect both dates, Waterloo commemorates Memorial Day for four days starting with events on the 22nd, and ending on the 26th, and then they recognize Memorial Day again on the 30th. I can’t personally think of a better place to show one’s respect for the ultimate sacrifices made by so many of our countrymen, (and now countrywomen), than in Waterloo, New York.
In addition to the traditional Memorial Day services and activities on Monday the 26th, Operation Firing For Effect will conduct the Willie Nelson, ‘Support Our Troops’ Signature Guitar Drawing at 3pm, at VFW Post 6433 in Waterloo.
In addition, on Monday the 26th, the Patriot Guard Motorcycle Organization will be forming at VFW Post 6433 for a Memorial Day Colors Ride. If you are a rider, Waterloo is the place to be this Memorial Day!
This year marks the 142nd Consecutive Memorial Day held in Waterloo, New York.
