Fallen Franklin Veteran to Be Honored May 11th

This month, on May 11th, Charles Christakes who lost his life in World War II, will be honored in a brief program by Franklin’s Veterans’ organizations, the Edward L. Grant American Legion Post 75, and the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars Post 3402, under the auspices of the Town’s Veterans Council, at the Veterans Memorial at Franklin Town Common. 

This program will include the placing of a Memorial Wreath for the day, the playing of Taps, a salute from those present, and a reading of whatever history we may have on that veteran.  This is a way of keeping the memory of that veteran alive.
