Fort Knox PAO
A ceremony in observance of Memorial Day will be held at 11:30 a.m. Monday on Fort Knox’s Brooks Parade Field to honor military troops, past and present, for their service and sacrifices.
The actions of the late Pfc. David P. Nash—a native Kentuckian and Medal of Honor recipient—will be recognized as well with his family in attendance. While serving in Vietnam in 1968, Nash, of Whitesville, rolled onto an exploding grenade, sacrificing himself and saving the lives of three fellow Soldiers.
