Residents honor those who served our country
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 — Many who served in the United States military were remembered this Memorial Day with the placing of American flags and a white cross at their gravesite in the Westwood Cemetery. Special markers reveal residents of Westwood have fought in a variety of conflicts including World War I and World War II.
Diane Moore, a member of Feather River Blue Star Moms, coordinated the effort with the help of her husband, Matt. Chapters of Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. consist of mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians with children serving in the military, guard or reserves, or children who are veterans.
