Remembering our Fallen on Memorial Day

Remembering our Fallen on Memorial Day

Memorial Day often means picnics, parades and the start of the summer season.  But of course, the day means much more than that.

We owe our life and liberty to our nation’s Veterans, and Memorial Day is the day that we, in the United States, celebrate our brave men and women who lost their lives in service to our country. 

While we will miss the annual parade through town this year, due to social distancing mandates, one way that we can honor our fallen heroes is by visiting a war memorial. 

Auburn Area War Memorial

New Auburn Cemetery, 1040 Collins Drive, Auburn.

This site memorializes men and women from the Auburn area, who lost their lives in service of World Wars I, II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan

Auburn War Memorial

Fulweiler Street across from Old Auburn Cemetery, Auburn.

Rocklin Veterans Memorial 

3972 Rocklin Road, Rocklin Memorial Park, Rocklin

Roseville WWII Memorial

114 Vernon Street, Roseville

Roseville Korean War Memorial

Maidu Park, Maidu Drive, Roseville

Roseville Vietnam Memorial

Saugstad Park, Douglas Boulevard, Roseville

Visiting a war memorial or Veteran’s gravesite, leaving flowers, sharing stories of family or friends who were lost in our nation’s service, or merely acknowledging our fallen with an intentional act or moment of silence are all appropriate ways to ‘remember’ this Memorial Day.

Thank you for reading, and God bless.
