Remembering The Fallen
Hundreds Gather In Fort Peck On Memorial Day
A celebration of a new memorial was also a time to salute the fallen. Some 800 people gathered at the Fort Peck Theatre on Monday, May 26, to listen to the speakers, give honor to the fallen and celebrate the soon-to-be Northeast Montana Veterans Memorial Park.
The event brought speakers Navy SEAL Rober O'Neill, former Gov. Marc Racicot, Maj. Gen. Matthew Quinn and attorney Clifford Edwards, who read a letter from Tom Brokaw. Those speakers spoke to the audience about the importance of remembering the sacrifices, remembering those who served and passing it on to future generations.
