Letter: Lest we forget

It has long been the custom in Hiram each year to provide a program for the Memorial Day ceremony held at Fairview Cemetery. The program brochure includes a “Roll Call of Veterans.” The roll call includes names of veterans in Hiram Rapids Cemetery, Anchor-Moore Cemetery and Hiram Fairview Cemetery. Each of the names is read during the Memorial Day ceremony.

The names of eight veterans have inadvertently been omitted from the roll call lists for 2020 and 2021. Their names and military service notes are:

Dallas D. Chinn, World War II

Marland Chalker, World War II

Ernest Moorhouse, World War II

Stanley Hurd, Korean Conflict

James Mark Moser, Korean Conflict

Jerry Reynard, Vietnam War

Scott Case, Air Force ROTC

Joseph Stobierski, U.S. Army

Hopefully these names can be included in future honor roll listings for Hiram Village and Hiram Township.
