The Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park will have a Memorial Day Program at the Park on Saturday, May 29th, 2010, at 10 A.M. The Park is located at 1050 Newnan Rd., Carrollton, GA 30116 (It is near the intersection of Hwy. 166 and Hwy. 16) The featured speaker will be Dr. John H. Burson, III, Ph.D., M.D., an otolaryngologist, president of Chattahoochee Healthcare, LLC, chairman of the Board of Directors of Tanner Health System, and is a licensed professional engineer, a retired military officer, a pilot and avid collector of vintage aircraft, the father of four, and an active community leader and volunteer. Retired from the U.S. Army Reserve with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, Dr. Burson has returned for short periods of active duty and served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The latest feature to be added to the Park is a Women's Memorial Wall which is six feet tall by 24 feet wide and is covered with military women images. Traditionally, women in the military have had to be either a nurse or a clerk. Now, we have a female four-star general and our women active-duty troops serve in all capacities. This Memorial Wall will be dedicated during the program by the Park President Norris A. Garrett.
