KENTUCKY (WFIE) - 13 names have been added to the Kentucky National Guard Memorial, including one from Muhlenberg County.

They were honored at the Kentucky National Guard’s annual Memorial Day ceremony.

Staff Sergeant Michael W. Brame, 35, of Greenville has been added.

Officials say Brame died following a crash on February 2, 2001, while returning to the Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center.

Each year, the Kentucky National Guard’s Memorial Day ceremony highlights the service and sacrifices of all U.S. service members who have perished in the line of duty.

Organizers say this year’s Memorial Day ceremony also commemorated the 30-year anniversary of the five Kentucky Air National Guard crewmembers killed in Evansville when their C-130B crashed during a training flight on Feb. 6, 1992.
