The City of Clearwater paused today to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Memorial Day. The program was held at the Florida Veterans Plaza located at Crest Lake Park. Special guests included State Representative Chris Latvala and “Tig” Tiegen who was a US Marine stationed at the consulate in Benghazi and featured in the movie “The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Former US Representative David Jolly was the emcee of the program that was coordinated by the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, which is still seeking individual contributions for the memorial wall at the plaza.
