Memorial Day Weekend 2007

Members of VFW Post 7589 conducted Buddy poppy drives on Saturday and Sunday, followed by activities on Monday that included a wreath laying ceremony at the Manassas Veteran's Memorial and flag placements at the Manassas Cemetery.

Each year Post 7589 performs these ceremonies on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day.

Lest we forget, Freedom is Not Free.
