Elizabethtown Historical Society
Sixty-nine years ago, Robert Dale Reem of Elizabethtown gave his life for our country while protecting the lives of his fellow marines. As a result of this
heroic action 2nd Lt Reem received the Medal of Honor. The Reem family has a long history in not only Elizabethtown but in Lancaster County as the founders of both Rheems and Reamstown.
As we prepare to pay tribute to our family, friends and hometown fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, please join us to reflect on Robert and learn about the cause for which he willingly gave his life.
