"Taps" is played to conclude the Veterans Day ceremony in Warrenton in 2016.

In lieu of the county's annual ceremony to honor veterans on Memorial Day, the Fauquier Times is preparing a slideshow of veterans we have lost, to be shown on Memorial Day, May 25.

Please send us photographs of your friends and loved ones who have served in the armed forces and are no longer with us.

Along with a photograph, please send the following information to rearl@fauquier.com:

  • The name of the veteran, with rank
  • Branch of service
  • Years served
  • Conflict they served in

Thank you helping us to honor these veterans so their service and sacrifices are not forgotten.

While we should honor our veterans, past and living, Memorial Day is for those who died while serving in the military, not just veterans "no longer with us" which could include veterans who died after retiring. Let's honor this day for those who truly gave all. I'm sure there are still submissions for to be given for that purpose.
