Hopefully, by remembering those who gave "the last full measure..."
According to General Order No. 11, issued on May 5th, 1868, by General John A. Logan, of the Grand Army of the Republic, what came later to be known as Memorial Day, "is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no form or ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit."
There are many Memorial Day services and events in the Green Bay area. Many people may not be aware that the only resident of Brown County, Wisconsin, to date, to have received the Congressional Medal of Honor, Sgt. Denis J.F. Murphy, is buried in a family plot in the Allouez Catholic Cemetary.
Sgt. Denis John Francis Murphy, of the 14th Wisconsin -- and the De Pere Rifles -- was cited for valor in the second battle of Corinth, MS, during which he was struck by 4 mini balls, yet -- as color sargent, never let the flag fall. The efforts by the military to get Murphy to take a discharge were, shall we say, ineffective, as he would come home, rest up, and re-join the fight from another unit. He was finally persuaded to take office duties for the final year of the war.
Murphy, and his comrades in the Howard chapter of the Grand Army of the Republic, were instrumental in carrying out the first decoration of area veterans' graves with American Flags.
You can hear a reading of "Logan's Order" at Heritage Hill on Monday - May 29th, at their "Memorial Day ~ A Soldier's Remembrance" event:
A solemn remembrance of soldiers who fought and died for their country. A FREE ceremony will be held at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with local veteran groups.
The Green Bay News Network salutes all of our brave Military - especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
