Memorial Day Ceremony 5/27/19

There will be a Memorial Day ceremony on Monday May 27, 2019 beginning at 9:30 am at Veterans Field, 400 Street Road in Upper Southampton Township.  Since 1947, the American Legion Post 800 in Southampton has hosted this event.

This year’s speaker will be Master Sergeant Holly E. Schlittler, US Air Force.  She served in Qatar, Turkey, Kuwait and Iraq.   She has several awards from her deployments including the Meritorious Unit award with two Oak Leaf Clusters, Iraqi Campaign Medal with Bronze Star, and the Air Force Expeditionary Service Ribbon with gold border.  She is currently serving as Flight Sergeant, 111th Security Forces Squadron, Horsham, PA.

The William Tennent High School Band will perform during the ceremony.  Upper Southampton service members who gave their lives during WWII and Vietnam will be remembered and honored by the placing of a wreath at the base of each memorial tree.  We invite all to join us for this tribute to all of our fallen military.
