On Tuesday, May 15, at 1:00 p. m., the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will host the annual Prince William County Armed Forces & Memorial Day Ceremony at Freedom Park. The ceremony will honor the men and women who serve our country and remember all of those who lost their lives defending our freedoms. The public is invited to attend. The event will also be streamed live at facebook.com/pwcgov.
Freedom Park is located at the Prince William County Government Complex just off the Prince William Parkway (1 County Complex Court, Woodbridge). The tribute will be held at the War Memorial, which is a black granite monument that lists the names of all county residents who lost their lives while serving in war starting from World War I to present day. Freedom Park also includes a memorial fountain dedicated to those in the community who died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
