Northwest Guilford Memorial VFW Post 7999 is pleased to announce that the dedication of its veterans’ monument will take place on Monday, July 4th, 2011. Please share this information with your viewers/readers. The post has put nearly four years of work into planning and fund-raising to create a monument honoring all veterans, regardless of when or where they served. With Phase One of the monument complete, we are eager for the public to join us on this very special day as we raise the American flag as well as Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard, and POW/MIA flags on site for the very first time.

The July 4th event will feature speakers Sheriff B.J. Barnes, Summerfield Mayor Mark Brown, and Post Commander Roy Lee. There will be live buglers, patriotic music, a canon firing, and an appearance by members of the patriotic motorcycle group Rolling Thunder (North Carolina Chapter 6). Light refreshments will be served following the conclusion of the dedication ceremony.
