Participating veterans' organizations include American Legion Post 187, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 187, American Legion Riders, VFW Post 8466, the Wake Forest Purple Heart Foundation, Marine Corps League Detachment 1257 and the Wake Forest High School Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps to host a Memorial Flag-Raising Ceremony in town hall's Centennial Plaza.
The services are designed to pay tribute to the service and memory of deceased Wake Forest veterans, while also acknowledging the sacrifices of their families.
Each ceremony features patriotic songs, special remarks, a memorial wreath laying and the ceremonial flag-raising by members of the Wake Forest High School JROTC. After raising the American flag, the JROTC raises the service flag representing the military branch in which the honoree served. Both flags fly in Centennial Plaza throughout the month.
Photographs and other remembrances of each month's honoree are displayed in Centennial Plaza during the ceremony, then in the town hall lobby through the end of the month.
The public is invited to attend these services.
