MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY, MAY 27, 2019.


MEMORIAL DAY 2019 IS A GREAT TIME TO HONOR OUR TROOPS AND VETERANS

Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day was made official by the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, General John Logan, on May 5, 1868. It was initially declared as a day of remembrance for the U.S. soldiers who died during the Civil War, but it eventually became a day of remembrance for American soldiers who died fighting any war.

On the first Decoration Day, while General James Garfield made a speech, 5,000 people decorated the graves of 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried at Arlington National Cemetery. By 1890, the day was recognized by the northern states, but the South rejected the holiday until after World War I, when Memorial Day no longer was a day declared to commemorate Civil War soldiers, but all American soldiers who died in war.

The Ironton - Lawrence County, Ohio Memorial Day Parade is the nation's oldest continuously running Memorial Day parade, it has been a tradition since 1868. Never missed a year. The first parade was held May 5, 1868 by order of Major General John A. Logan, commander of the Grand Army of the Republic in honor of the soldiers who died fighting the Civil War. Our local parade has 12 separate divisions and draws tens of thousands per year .

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and Memorial Day is a special time for Patriotism.

A simple-yet-meaningful way you can honor the service and sacrifice of our troops is simply to express your sincere thanks and appreciation to the many military veterans still living, as well as anyone actively serving in the Armed Forces.

The HAM RADIO OPERATORS listed below are our heroes, you can be one of these local heroes by participating in the local Memorial Day Parade.

Below we want to list our heroes, they are the men and women who are helping in the Ironton - Lawrence County Memorial Day Parade.

The names and calls of all are really appreciated, we do need more names and calls to be added to this local list of heroes.

Jim Rowe, N8TVO is the local Memorial Day Parade communications coordinator. Please have your name and call added to this list by sending your name and call to Jim n8tvo@yahoo.com

Below is the list of hams showing their patriotism as of May 15, 2019, we do need many more names and calls

FRED HAS HELPED FOR MANY YEARS, WE ARE SORRY HIS NAME AND CALL HAD BEEN OMITTED FROM THE LIST OF HAMS HELPING WITH THE PARADE.

The Ironton - Lawrence County, OH Memorial Day Parade has been active every year since 1868, never missed one. Since 1990 the Southern Ohio Amateur Radio Association with help from our ham friends in surrounding counties and states has helped provide communications.

There are 12 large parade divisions and one or more ham radio operators walk with a division. Each parade division has a parade commander and the ham is there to provide communications when needed. There have been emergencies, the commander needs to talk to another commander or other parties, and more. A ham radio net control will have an operator and an assistant. All calls should be made through net control, net control will authorize and your call can be made. There will be a ham with 911 and EMS. A ham will be along the route with a EMS first aid station. Communications at our staging area of Third and Center behind Wendy's. There are several important locations along the route that will have ham radio communications.

At this time there have been several hams sign to help this year. If you are patriotic this is a great way to show it by helping with this Memorial Day Parade. We are short on hams that are able to walk the parade with a division. If you are handicapped and can't walk the parade, there are many other important locations for you. Helping last year but not listed yet are: Dennis Grant KD8UDM, Beth Jenkins, KE8HTM, and Taylor Darby, K4AHS.

If you have not signed with Jim to help please do so now. If you are able to walk the parade route and be the communications ham please let Jim know. Jim Rowe, N8TVO is the parade communications coordinator. E mail Jim with your name and call n8tvo@yahoo.com

Thanks for showing your patriotism.
