2014 Memorial Day in Nebraska

Today across Nebraska many celebrations in honor of the true meaning of Memorial Day are taking place.  Each link below contains several options – some will be more patriotic than others!

Wyuka Honor Circle

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

-Katherine Lee Bates-
