A Special Tribute


When Terry and Carmen Banfill got up on Memorial Day morning, they felt sad, knowing that this year the events that they normally participated in would not be held due to the COVID-19. They then remembered the new flag they had purchased for Highland Cemetery to be placed near the Soldiers’ Circle. They decided to make a special tribute at Soldiers’ Circle on this Memorial Day. Terry put on his Coast Guard uniform and the couple went to the cemetery. After Terry put up the new flag, Terry and Carmen said special prayers. Terry then played TAPS, followed by a proud salute, as they honored all the heroes at Soldiers’ Circle and throughout the world. “We must not forget. Our veterans will always be in our thoughts and prayers,” Terry said.
