Vigil in Memphis Monday to Honor 3,000 Iraq War Dead

Posted By on Sun, Dec 31, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Concerned Memphians will hold a vigil on New Year's Day to mourn the 3,000 American soldiers who have died in Iraq. The names of those killed in Iraq will be read aloud starting at noon, Monday, and will continue until the vigil at 6:15 p.m.

The event will take place outside the Federal Plaza, 167 N Main St.

“How many more soldiers do we have to lose from Tennessee before we have an exit strategy with a timeline that starts now?” said Jacob Flowers, director of the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center. "People will gather at the vigil holding signs that say 'How Many More?' and 'Support Our Troops. Bring Them Home.'
