Other participants will be the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard, the Boynton Beach Fire Department Honor Guard, the Seminole Ridge High School Army JROTC, the Santaluces High School Army JROTC, the Olympic Heights High School MCJROTC, Boy Scouts of America Troop 395, Cub Scouts of America Pack 241, the Palm Beach Pipe & Drums, patriotic music DJ Brandon V and many more. Project 425 will display their military vehicles. Haileigh Galloway will sing the national anthem God Bless America. There will be complimentary food and beverages following the service.

“We welcome the public, local dignitaries and truly encourage families to bring their children for this special Memorial Day service,” said Lynelle Chauncey Zelnar, founder of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. “We applaud Palm Beach Memorial Park for continuing to host this event with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. “I continue to be so proud that my 11-year-old son, Bryson Baggett, will again be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance this year. He’s so excited that he ‘owns’ this honor for this event. He has been doing this since he was four years old.”
