This May, commemorate those who served our country.

VFW Post 9024 and American Legion Post 501 gather together for the Woodbury Memorial Day Ceremony on May 27.

“Our concept for Memorial Day is to commemorate those who have died for our freedom, remember those who received something from their service so heavy that they could not bear it and thus committed suicide, give a helping hand to those veterans who might need something and a bit of history,” says Richard Cady, VFW Post 9024 senior vice commander.

This year’s speaker is Colonel Mark Wiens*, a native Minnesotan with a 30-year-long U.S. Army and Minnesota Army National Guard career. Wiens’s military career is vast, and he now advocates for veterans and the military. He serves as an executive board member of the World War II Round Table and created the Student Outreach Program, which meets monthly at the Minnesota History Center. Alongside Wiens’s remarks, Cady says there will be several booths and historical displays at the ceremony from 9:30–11 a.m. and noon to 1:30 p.m., and the program is set for 11 a.m.–noon.
