This year, our observance of Memorial Day may be different from previous years while we help slow the spread of COVID-19 by keeping appropriate social distance,” said Col. Patrick T. Birchfield, Blanchfield Army Community Hospital commander.

“Instead of blarge events, we can remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in a more private way. Tour the memorials on post and say a silent, “thank you” for the sacrifices of those who came before us. Pause for a Moment of Remembrance on Monday, May 25th, and think about any veterans in your family who have passed on. Consider reaching out to a Gold Star family and sharing your appreciation for their sacrifices. Thank you for remembering our fellow Soldiers and their selfless service,” Birchfield stated.
