VALPARAISO | World War II veterans Bill Wellman and John Wolf will be the guest speakers at Friday's annual Memorial Day service at the Foundation Meadows service memorial.

Valparaiso has held its Memorial Day services on the Friday before Memorial Day since 2003, and the city, the Parks Department and the Parks Foundation invite everyone to attend the 12:15 p.m. observance.

The service memorial honors the sacrifice of those in the military as well as those who have served the country and their community in extraordinary and selfless ways.

"In addition to the unofficial start of the summer, Memorial weekend is a time to remember those that have served and are serving to give us the opportunity to experience the freedoms we enjoy," Parks Director John Seibert said.
