Memorial Day 2020 

Although large gatherings are still banned as a result of COVID-19, it is important that we remember the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to give us our continued freedom. For this reason, we have partnered with Tyndall Air Force Base and Naval Support Activity Panama City to produce a video version of our annual Memorial Day service. Please join us in watching this video service as we honor our fallen soldiers. 

To those who are or have served, THANK YOU!
