City seeks veterans' information for Memorial Day


Markers to be placed week before ceremony


April 13, 2014
MILTON, Ga. – The city of Milton will hold its seventh annual Memorial Day ceremony May 26 and, in preparation, is adding veterans into the city's registry of service men and women.

Through years of hard work and the generosity of residents, Milton has amassed a list of nearly 600 living and fallen veterans, almost 325 of whom are memorialized with markers placed on Deerfield Parkway the week of the holiday. Any deceased veteran of a Milton family is qualified to be honored with a marker. Information on living veterans will be used for recognition purposes.

Living veterans do not receive markers.

Each year, residents ask how their family members may be added to the registry. The city does not have access to a government database revealing who served in the military. Instead, they need residents to tell them.

Residents must fill out a form on the city's website, HYPERLINK "http://www.cityofmiltonga.us" www.cityofmiltonga.us, to add family members.

To access the form, click on the "Find a Form or Permit" tab at the top of the page and choose "Register military veterans' information" from the "Online Forms" section at the top of the page.

Once Milton has the information, it will be placed in a secure database. The names will then be sent to City Councilman Bill Lusk, who for seven years has personally built, painted, engraved and placed the markers at his own expense.

Milton's Memorial Day ceremony will take place 10 a.m. Monday, May 26 at Freedom Park, 13200 Deerfield Parkway.
