Does anyone have the 2015 list of names for the Memorial? I can't seem to locate it.

Justin Helton's rank is incorrect. Should be SPC.

Haven't seen the Memorial video they did at the ball this year like the previous years, but if you missed the Memorial ceremony this year you can view it on youtube or the below website.

http://www.eodwarriorfoundation.org/

The auction had some really nice items this year as well. A custom 9' board, some fire arms, a Harley raffle from Emerald Coast Harley, lots of hand made items.

Cudos to the personnel who did the research on the WWII individuals, contacted the families, and advocated for their addition to the Memorial wall. The guest speakers that spoke did an amazing job at the Memorial and Ball.

At the ball for the oldest and youngest EOD grad for the traditional cake cutting ceremony, the oldest in the room graduated EOD school in 1959. There was quite a few that graduated in 1960.

I drove up to visit the Memorial yesterday, only to find that security is on a higher alert and that the (school?) Memorial is closed on the weekends. I supposed I should of called first.

Could someone please post when weekends are open to visitors again, thanks.
