The Roanoke Elks lodge is making a difference for our veterans and the D-Day Memorial.
Lodge #197 donated $500 to go towards luminaries for the National D-Day Memorial Flames of Memory and Christmas in Wartime Presentation.
The event is scheduled for December 13-15th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the memorial in Bedford.
The memorial will light more than 4,000 luminaries in memory of D-Day's fallen and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The masked ISIS militant who appears to be shown beheading American journalist Steve Sotloff spoke on video before killing him, saying, “just as your missiles continue to strike our people our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."
