Memorial Day Ceremony - Sunday May 28, 3:00 pm. Guest Speaker is Earl Granville; Staff Sergeant U.S. Army retired. Earl is a motivational speaker from north east PA. He served as an Infantryman. On his last deployment he lost his leg above the knee due to a roadside bomb attack. Two of his teammates died from the blast. Also providing patriotic musical performances will be the Bellwood Community Choir and Gold Star Dad Dave Gettings who will perform an original piece he composed in honor of his son Albert who was killed while serving in Iraq.
After many years of work, and thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, Patriot Park became a reality in 2021. But our work is not done.
Tens of thousands of brave servicemen and women have been wounded, and over 7,000 have made the ultimate sacrifice in the Global War on Terrorism. Our Nation owes them a debt of gratitude we can never fully repay—but we can do all in our power to honor them.

Patriot Park is a project beginning to take shape in Somerset County, Pennsylvania within the boundary of Flight 93 National Memorial.
The battle that raged onboard United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, prevented what would have been another awful tragedy on an already tragic day. In fact, the passengers onboard Flight 93 can be referred to as, “the first combatants’ in what came to be known as the “Global War on Terror”. Since that infamous day, millions of Americans have bravely served in the military and over 7000 brave men and women have lost their lives in the Nation’s efforts to eradicate terrorism. Thousands more have suffered severe and debilitating injuries. Patriot Park has been conceived as a place where our gratitude can be expressed. The Field of Heroes Flag display contains one flag for each service man or woman who has died in the line of duty since 9-11. Over 7,000.
