12th REGIMENT MONUMENT MEMORIAL DAY 2020
Good day Fellow Veterans, both retired and active duty ( BCC).
I wanted to inform you that normally on this day, Joan and I would visit the Walk of Honor at the NIM, Ft Benning,Ga. and place our 12th IN Regt.Wreath at the site of OUR 12th Monument. We placed now for the Memorial Day weekend and events at the NIM. none this year.. However, the NIM is officially closed and the main road into the NIM, Benning Rd is closed for repairs, making it almost impossible to even get to the Walk of Honor. Hence, I decided not place our wreath this year, however, will do so, if possible at the next appropriate event.
Respectfully, Ed Eorthrop.
Having Been Led By Love of Country"
