On Sunday, May 21, 2005, 12 Chapter members placed flags

on veterans’ graves at Lake Park Cemetery in Youngstown, Ohio.

The following week, on Sunday, May 29, 2005, at 1 p.m., the

Chapter held a “Laying of the Roses” ceremony. As each name

of the memorial was read, a red rose was placed on the memorial

platform. The frist name read was Thomas Tsoukras. His

mother, Thomasine Tsoukras, is our Chapter’s only Gold Star

mother. She placed the rose for her son, assisted by her daughter

and Chapter member Robert Brothers. There are 122 names of

Korean War casualties from Columbiana, Mahoning, and

Trumbull Counties.
