MILTON, Ga. – The city of Milton will hold its sixth annual Memorial Day ceremony May 27 and in preparation is adding veterans into the city's registry of service men and women.

Through five years of hard work and the generosity of residents, Milton has amassed a list of nearly 500 living and fallen veterans, almost 300 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, it needs residents to tell them.

If a friend or family member is or was a veteran, fill out the form at City Hall or online at the city of Milton website, www.cityofmiltonga.us. 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 the city of 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 five years has personally built, painted, engraved and placed the markers at his own expense.

Milton's Memorial Day ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Monday, May 27 at City Hall.

Please remember the sacrifices made for our freedom.
