Llano Cemetery And Texas Panhandle War Memorial Set To Honor Heroes

President Abraham Lincoln called it “that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion” and Monday morning the area will do just that.

Llano Cemetery will be hosting the Memorial Day Ceremony in honor of Veterans who have served Monday morning. Congressman Ronny Jackson will be speaking at the ceremony. The Avenue of Flags which began in 2014 will be honoring over 190 Veterans. This year it will include the raising of 42 new flags from families who were unable to participate last year and families who have donated over the past year.

Mark N. Blankenship, who was the Executive Director of Llano Cemetery for the past eight years will be honored for beginning the Avenue of Flags

The Memorial Service begins at 10:00 a.m. at Poppy Field north of the Pantheon Mausoleum with the Blue Sky Honor Flight Flyover.


The Texas Panhandle War Memorial will pay homage to the men and women who have preserved our freedoms.

The ceremony will last one hour and feature music, military ceremonies, play each service song and the service members that are here that were in that branch of the military can stand up and be recognized, present gold star families with a rose, a flyover, and honor service members who have given their lives for freedom. The keynote speaker is U. S. Congressman Ronnie Jackson.
The event will start at 11 a.m. located at the center at 4111 South Georgia.
