Today we went to Yeraplur, following a service at Dzoravar Church to remember Monte Melkonian.

Monte was laid to rest at Yeraplur 12 years ago after loosing his life in battle in town of Merzulu, Azerbaijan on June 12, 1993.

In attendance were friends of Monte’s as well as people who didn’t know him personally, but appreciate what Monte did for our nation and believe in what he stood for.

The weather for such a visit could not have been better and after some word of remembrance, we drank a toast to Monte, followed by some nice fresh bread, salami and big juicy black olives.
