In a statement on social media Director of Campbell County Veteran Services Kevin Walden stated, “I am sadden to announce that due to COVID-19, we will forgo the Memorial Day events in Campbell County Tennessee at both Jacksboro Courthouse and Jellico Veteran’s park on Monday 25th May 2020. Due to the unknown etiology of this disease in our area, we want to lean on side of safety for our veterans. We honor our veterans and we will never forget to support them and keep them first in our thoughts and prayers.”
