Four units dedicate monuments at Miramar

Pipe Corporal Ian Kelly opened the Memorial Walkway dedication ceremony, Saturday, Aug. 3, at Miramar National Cemetery, 5795 Nobel Drive.

The Jewish War Veterans, Special Forces Association, San Diego Chapter of the Chosin Few, and Navy Nurse Corps Association placed monuments that were dedicated during the ceremony.

Army Col. Roger Donlon, the first U.S. soldier to receive the Medal of Honor during Vietnam, was the guest speaker. In his remarks, Col. Donlon said, “We remember all of those who made the supreme sacrifice giving their lives on the battlefield. We remember those who fought in all the wars. We also remember the men and women who were trained and ready during times of peace, when their existence alone was a deterrent to any potential enemy.”
