The Rock Island District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will honor veterans with a ceremony on Memorial Day at Coralville Lake.

Everyone is invited to come honor these Johnson County Veterans, as the Corps re-dedicates the Veterans Trail. This is the 26th anniversary of the event, since it began in 1989.

Honorees on the trail are all from Johnson Co., and hold the Purple Heart or higher.

This year 11 veterans will be recognized for their service: PFC Eugene W. Dunn, CAPT Joseph M. Greer, LTC Allyn D. Gronewold, HM2 Oliver A. Havens, CPT James R. Higginbotham, SGT John J. Kamp, SPC Matthew C. Macke, MAJ David L. Nixon, LCPL Rickey K. Peters, SSG Gregory C. Touzani and S/SGT Benjamin L. Wright.

The event will include a 21 gun salute, taps, and a performance of the National Anthem. Weather permitting, a military flyover is also planned.

The event will be held at the East Overlook Picnic Area on the east side of Coralville Dam. It begins at 1:30 p.m.
