Clemson University Memorial Day Service
A service honoring America’s military dead from all wars is scheduled for Sunday, May 27, at Clemson University’s Scroll of Honor Memorial. The ceremony begins at 4pm and the community is invited to attend. The memorial service will feature the placing of a wreath, the playing of “Taps” and the dedication of two new stones on the Scroll of Honor Memorial. The stones represent Lawrence N. Meadors, Class of 1954, and John B. Mitchell, Class of 1949, who lost their lives while serving on active duty in the United States Air Force. The dedication of stones engraved with the names of these men will bring to 493 the number of heroes memorialized on the Scroll of Honor. Limited seating will be provided, so participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be cancelled.
