Memorial Day Service
American Legion Post 522 of Lewisville sponsored this year’s Memorial Day Service (on May 31, 2010) at the Veterans Memorial in Shallowford Square. Hundreds from the Lewisville community gathered to honor the military men and women who have given their lives in service to our country.
The Memorial Day program included a vintage military vehicle exhibition and a flyover by pilot Bill Kyle in a World War II-era plane, the T6 Trainer. During the roughly one-hour program, the audience enjoyed special music that included vocalists and bagpipes, as well as a message by guest speaker Tom Summy. Members of American Legion Post 522 also served as the honor guard, the rifle squad and bugler.

Real and Present Gratitude
Thanks to the efforts of the American Legion Post 522 and other groups and individuals, our community gathered once more at the Veterans Memorial at Shallowford Square on Memorial Day to honor and thank those who serve, and have served, in our nation’s military.
The Memorial Day Service included vintage military vehicles, special music, invocation and benediction, Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, Commissioner David Plyler, honor guard, rifle squad and bugler.
We’re thankful for our military men and women who are presently serving our country in such a challenging time. We know you have not chosen the easiest of paths, and we thank you for your service, and for the sacrifices you and your families are making on behalf of your country.
