On Monday, there are three Memorial Day services in Texarkana:
- 11:00 a.m. at Miller County Courthouse, hosted by American Legion 25-58 followed by Memorial Day Walk to the Korea/Vietnam Memorial.
- 11:45 a.m., the Vietnam Veterans of America #278 service at Korea/Vietnam Memorial.
- 1:00 p.m. Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery hosted by Texarkana Funeral Home.
At 3:00 pm the National Moment of Remembrance will occur.
The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather, it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died in service to the United States.
Please remember our heroes who gave their lives so we may enjoy freedom!
