Vietnam Wall Monument/ NEW Veterans Area Ceremony

        Event Date: 08/26/2017

            10:00 am We are hosting the dedication of the monument commemorating the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall (AVTT), which was on this site in August of 2016. We are also opening a new area for veterans and their spouses to be laid to rest. It was during our planning time for the burial area that a tragedy came to a local family in the loss of their son. We laid to rest Army Airborne Ranger Sgt Joshua P. Rodgers who was killed in action in Afghanistan in our new veterans area. The Evergreen Memorial Cemetery Staff and Board of Trustees asked Sgt Rodgers family for permission to name the new area for their son. The Rodgers family agreed and so we are dedicating and naming this area for this brave soldier who gave his life in the line of duty. We are honored to have had the AVTT Vietnam Wall visit the Cemetery and are even more honored the Rodgers family chose Evergreen Memorial Cemetery to care for their son.
