The Colorado Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand during the Eric Dickson Memorial Ceremony at Memorial Park, 117 Center Ave Woodland Park, Co 80863 on August 25th, 2018 at 1000am. They are requesting a flag line surrounding the bronze statue during the ceremony.

The Eric V. Dickson Memorial Committee has been committed to erecting a life size bronze statue to honor Teller County and Woodland Park’s only death in the Viet Nam War. Eric Voughn Dickson was killed in action on May 31, 1967 while serving our country and flag with the United States Marine Corps. This incredible long overdue work of art will be on permanent display at Memorial Park. Memorial Park was dedicated to the local veterans of WWI and WWII in 1944.

This memorial to Eric Dickson will also include the names of WPHS alumni and other Teller County Veterans who served in Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos or Thailand. Their names will be permanently engraved into the granite base honoring their service and thanking them for their sacrifices made during that war.

Will an available RC please post?

Stage: 9:15 am at Memorial Park 117 Center Ave, Woodland Park, CO 80863

Brief: 9:30 AM

Flag Line: 9:45 AM
