Dick Elder Guide National D-Day Memorial

After moving to Virginia in 1995, Dick became aware of the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA, and decided he wanted to work there as a guide. He has been volunteering at the memorial for 10 years and thoroughly enjoys the work because it’s a very meaningful way for him to honor the military service and sacrifice of his father. In addition, the National D - Day Memorial is a wonderful tribute to the Bedford Boys whose service and sacrifice is both sad and uplifting.

“Why I do it…”

“I participate in Gratitude Charlottesville because I am committed to showing members of our military, veteran, and law enforcement communities that we are grateful for their service, their sacrifice, and their commitment to keep our community and our country safe.”
