Memorial Service for Lt. Burleigh Curtis on June 15th

June 13, 2019

Seventy five years, almost to the day, a memorial service will be held for Lt. Burleigh Curtis, a 22 year old Holliston man who perished when his P-47 Thunderbolt crashed in Briouze, France in WWII.

Curtis' remains were identified in 2017. Those remains will be buried along side his parents in Maine later this month. Curtis' plane crashed on June 13th and a memorial service has been arranged by the local American Legion Post #47 for 11 a.m. on Saturday June 15th at the First Baptist Church on High Street. The public is invited to attend.

A Massachusetts Medal of Liberty will be presented to Curtis' 94 year old sister Madelyn Klose who resides in New Hampshire by Col. Brett Conaway of the Mass. National Guard. A collation will be held in the church hall at the conclusion of the ceremonies.

Officers are taught to place a hand on the car as they approach. Why? Because if in the course of the stop the officer is murdered and the driver takes off, the officer's finger prints on the car will prove that he stopped the car.
