Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship Church is continuing its tradition of holding a special Memorial Day service on 26 May at 9 a.m. for veterans at its church located just off the intersection of Cedar Crest Boulevard and I-78 in Allentown. This year’s guest speaker will be Retired Rear Admiral Tim Ziemer who is currently the U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator.
Rear Admiral Tim Ziemer is a Vietnam War Veteran. Born in Sioux City, Iowa, he was raised in Asia as the son of missionary parents serving in Vietnam. Upon graduation from Wheaton College, he joined the U.S. Navy, completed flight school, and returned to Vietnam during the war. He commanded several squadrons, naval stations, and an air wing supporting the first Gulf War. He served as executive director of World Relief, based in Baltimore, until June 2006, when he was appointed to lead the President’s Malaria Initiative in controlling malaria in Africa.
A reception will follow in our Activity Center.
Bring your friends and family as we pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate price and honor all veterans and service men and women. Come in military uniform or wear your medals and hats.
