All those who fought and served their country when they received the call, were men and women of courage, judgment, integrity and dedication. Where does dedication end? You can never put an end to dedication. After all, those who remain Prisoners of War or are still Missing in Action are still serving with never ending dedication. For them, it can never be over. For us, we can never let their sacrifices, or them, be forgotten.

Each year Posts in District 1 conduct public ceremonies throughout the District.  The ceremony stresses the sacrifices that brothers and sisters in arms who did not return have undergone.  In addition, we never forget that families of service men and women sacrifice too and we include special recognition for the families of those that did not return.
