in Pueblo, CO

Memorial Day is one of those days when American's set a side time to remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Veterans, active duty military, their families and the Pueblo community came together to remember all of those who have served and especially those that we have lost. The community gathered at the Pueblo Veterans Memorial Bridge in a ceremony that was a dignified and emotional tribute.

True to its mission, the American Red Cross was represented at this special event. They were there, like so many others, to commemorate our service men and women.

The American Red Cross has supported our nation's armed forces for more than a century in peacetime and in war.

"Our volunteers have been a strong presence during war time making sure that emergency messages get passed from family to service member," said Wayne Lacey, Service to Armed Forces director for the Colorado & Wyoming Red Cross. "They were that shoulder to lean on for service members and families."

As a proud supporter of our nation's military, the Colorado and Wyoming Region Service to Armed Forces volunteers and staff presented a wreath that will be placed at the Pueblo Veterans Memorial Bridge. It will be placed alongside wreaths from several other organizations who were there to show support.
