Fallen and Missing Service Members Remembered and Will Not Be Forgotten

This past Memorial Day, fallen and missing service members who gave their lives in service to our country were remembered. As we honored those who gave the last full measure, we celebrated our County veterans and families and all they have done and continue to do.

The Montgomery County Commission on Veterans Affairs provides advice to the County Executive and County Council on the status of programs and services related to the needs of veterans. All veterans, their families and the public are invited to the next open meeting on Tuesday, June 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the first floor conference room at the Department of Health & Human Services, 401 Hungerford Drive, Rockville.

More information about the Commission is available at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/cva

Other significant dates include:
  • June 14– The 241st birthday of the United States Army
  • June 14- Flag Day, commemorating the adoption of the United States flag
  • June 23– The Coast Guard Auxiliary Birthday
June 27- National PTSD Awareness Day, which is of significant importance to the Commission given the daily loss of veterans to suicide
