Honoring Our Veterans Project
CELEBRATING ST. LUKE’S VETERANS
In 2017, a St. Luke’s volunteer, Ray Blaum, began updating and organizing the digital records of St. Luke’s Memorial Park Cemetery. As part of this huge undertaking, he began to research and identify the many veterans buried here. It is this labor of love that inspired St. Luke’s to build on his research and endeavor to learn more about our veterans.
We Need Your Stories!
While staff and volunteers continue to investigate the lives and accomplishments of those buried here, we are asking our community to assist us with this new project, the “Honoring Our Veterans Project.” If you have information or stories about the veterans buried here at St. Luke’s, we ask that you share these anecdotes, photos, etc. with us via the form below.
All of the research collected will be archived by St. Luke’s to assist future historians and genealogists.
A Day of Remembrance: Honoring Our Veterans
In an effort to recognize our veterans, the Education Department will also be using collected information in the planning and presentation of a new event, “A Day of Remembrance: Honoring Our Veterans.” Originally scheduled for May 2020, this event has been moved to Saturday, November 14, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event is free and open to the public. We hope you will share your stories with us and join us on November 14 to honor and recognize the veterans of St. Luke’s.
