Singing River Health System Hosts Memorial Day Services

On Memorial Day, Singing River Health System is organizing a series of patriotic services to honor the brave men and women who served in the armed forces and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and freedom. The community is invited to attend a special ceremony taking place at the flagpole at each hospital location. 

The ceremonies will feature a TAPS performance, a flag-raising ceremony, an honorable guest speaker from the WWII Heritage Foundation, a special presentation of a WWII plaque dedication to the Pascagoula campus, and more.
