We will be holding the informal ceremony this Veterans Day (November 11th) at the Veterans Memorial in East Prairie.

We encourage all descendants of John and Kizzie to attend the ceromony and luncheon. We will have the book "Military Role Call: The Littrell Family of Mississippi County, Missouri" available for review at the luncheon.*
After the last Littrell Family Luncheon we posted information about the Veteran's Memorial in East Prairie  Missouri. It was decided that we would facilitate the purchase of a brick for our families Veterans, descendants of John and Kizzie of East Prairie. We posted this information on June 9th with the plan being that we would have a dedication followed by another family lunch on Veterans Day this year.
We encourage any one who is descended from John & Kizzie who missed this opportunity to purchase a brick for their Veteran to still do so. It may be too late for this dedication but it isn't to late to do it. Be sure to let it be known that you wish the brick to be placed with the Littrell family bricks.
*The book list the Military Service of 35 descendants of John and Kizzie who have served in the military as well as ancestors of John and Kizzie that served since before the Revolutionary War.
We ask that anyone who has a copy of the book to bring it for viewing.
