Veterans Hold Service in Lowell for Soldiers Killed in Tennessee Muslim Terrorist Attack

The VAV (Veterans Assisting Veterans) hosted a candle light vigil to honor and remember our fallen solders from Chattanooga, Tennessee on Sunday, July 26, at the VFW Post 662 located at 190 Plain Street, Lowell.

More than 65 people showed up last night at the Lowell VFW, as Veterans Assisting Veterans held a memorial service for the four marines and one navy seaman who were killed last week by a Muslim Terrorist at a Tennessee recruiting center.

Air force veteran and WCAP radio host John MacDonald organized the event after Massachusetts Secretary of Veterans Services, Francisco Urena asked MacDonald if his organization could hold a service in Lowell for the slain troops.

MacDonald read the names of each serviceman killed in the terrorist attack as veterans, their families and members of the community held candles in silence.
Lowell City Councilor Bud Caulfield lead the crowd singing the national anthem.
Lowell Mayor Rod Elliott and State Rep. Tom Golden also addressed the crowd.
WCAP’s Colonel Sam Poulten played taps at the end of the service.

Thank you to everyone who came to the candle - lit vigil honoring our 5 fallen heroes who were victims of a vicious terrorist attack on TN.
