Jim and Sue Patron, Patron Funeral Homes & Crematory Kelly Kemp Braido, take supporting our country's military and all first responders seriously and will honor all military, wounded warriors, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics/EMTs, (active duty, retired, veterans, and fallen heroes) for their selfless duties in protecting and serving their country and communities. A very special program will be held for these men and women to show the blessing they are in the lives of each and every one of us. We will also be "Remembering 9/11."

Along with our heroes in uniform, we invite families, friends, communities, and especially family members of those who are no longer with us. It is our sincerest hope, that as many as possible from Belmont County and surrounding counties throughout Ohio, will be in attendance to show our support and appreciation, as we salute these men and women.

In recognition of those we are saluting, we ask that a picture, service emblem or even a short account of service, with their name, military/first responder branch, service dates, or any other memorabilia to be shared, be brought or sent to our Bethesda, Ohio location by August 1, 2017. These will be displayed in the lobby area of Union Local Middle School Auditorium for all to view and share stories and fellowship
