Superior Town Councilman Steve Estatico

Superior Police Chief Mark Nipp

Members of the Superior Veterans of Foreign Wars Truman Post honored those veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice for America’s freedom. During the ceremony the names of Superior veterans who lost their lives were read.

The ceremony started with the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the National Anthem by Frank Rabago. Rabago also led those in attendance with the singing of many other patriotic songs.

Several community leaders were asked to speak at the event. Mayor Valenzuela along with town council members Steve Estatico and Mila Besich-Lira spoke. Representing the fire department was Kris Nagy and Chief Mark Knipp spoke on behalf of the police department.

Each speech brought out the importance of remembering those who gave their lives for their country and how it is important to teach the youth and future generations of the Americans to respect their country. Nagy’s speech had a parallel to the service of firefighters and a member of the military, both are there for selfless acts and without a doubt we know that both will be there for us when we call.

The ceremony concluded with the ceremonial laying of the memorial wreath and Prisoner of Wars/Missing in Action wreath. A luncheon was provided by the VFW.
