The Seabreeze Beacon

“America without her Soldiers would be like God without His Angels.”   -Claudia Pemberton


Originally Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day, meant to honor the Union and the Confederate soldiers who died during the American Civil War. By the 1900s it had become a day to celebrate all American soldiers who died while serving in the military. It was not until 1967 that it was legally named Memorial Day.

Our community has historically honored those who died in the service of our country.  Veterans, families, and friends placed flags on the graves of every veteran in our cemeteries.  The Seabreeze Beacon honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.  You will never be forgotten. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”   – John 15:13.
