Please Honor Our Veterans At Memorial Day Ceremony In Carroll Park

Everyone here in the neighborhood knows the beautiful war memorial that stands in the center of Carroll Park, but few take the time to read the long list of names on the two bronze plaques attached to the side of the monument, commemorating those Carroll Gardeners who died in the service of this country.
This Memorial Day, let's take a moment to remember Franky Manning, Joseph Milori, Pasquale Muscillo and their comrades . Read on:

Memorial Day Ceremony In Carroll Park
Monday, May 30st  at 11 am
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance.

"It is a day to honor our nation’s war dead. It is a day to honor our veterans. It is a day to pray for the safe return of all those presently serving in our military. Join us as we honor their sacrifice
and as we place a wreath at the war memorial monument."

Over my many years enjoying the park, I do have one comment about it: Parents- please honor our Vets by not letting your little tykes use chalk/deface the memorial. And dog owners- please don't let your pooch pee on it.

Thank you for your service.

Maybe the monument should be enclosed within an appropriate wrought iron fence. It shouldn't have to be, but people are so inconsiderate and/ or oblivious. It's just baffling.
