National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
            For this year’s 2017 National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, Unit 1012 will remember more than 1500 murdered victims + victims of war crimes from the United States and around the world. Let us remember how they lived on this earth and treasure their memories.
