Many thanks to Sam Baca and all the support groups who made this wonderful event possible. Yes! Let's do this again next year...

This was a great event to help one of our own and enjoy a day out with family and friends. Thank you to Baca's Funeral Home and the Veterans and Family Memorial Care. It was great to see our community come together to support Lance Cpl. Dominguez and his family.

I was disappointed, however, that we did not have a Memorial Day Ceremony that honored our fallen heroes, as well. I think it is just as important that we remember those that gave their lives fighting not just for our country, but for you and me.

Thank you to the veterans and everyone else that showed up at the cemetery at 10 a.m. Monday to honor what Memorial Day is all about.
