The Tri-Cities Military Affairs Council hosted a Memorial Day service Monday, May 29, 2017 at the Veterans Memorial at J. Fred Johnson Park in Kingsport. During the service members of several of the groups that make up TC-MAC, including the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 979, American Legion Post 3, AMVETS Post 37, and Korean War Veterans Chapter 289, spoke about the heroes who gave their lives throughout the history of the United States, each touching on a different war. The service also included a "Missing Man Table" ceremony, and an audience-participation "We Remember" segment, during which those who wished to do so had the opportunity to place small American flags into a floral-form cross in memory of friends and family members who died in service to the nation. A wreath was placed at the memorial, and rifle volleys and Taps were performed by Amercian Legion Post 3/265 to conclude the service.
