Mayor Lenny Curry and the City of Jacksonville are looking to honor local survivors of the D-Day/Normandy invasions at this year’s annual City of Jacksonville Memorial Day ceremony. (The 75th anniversary of the invasion is just days after Memorial Day 2019.)

The event to honor these individuals will be in addition to and in conjunction with the annual Memorial Day ceremony at the Duval County Veterans Memorial Wall on Monday, May 27 at 8:30 am.
