Dedicated to our dear Brother and Son,
We will always remember you for your loving presence,
and all the joy and laughter you brought us.
About Our Hero
As a member of the JROTC program, he was Commander of the drill teams, color guard, and Operations Squadron. The Rochester Institute of Technology offered a full three-year scholarship, but Edmond was determined to serve his country.
On June 13, 2009 our country suffered a great loss when Edmond was killed in action while in Iraq supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was deployed with the 797th EOD Company to Baghdad, Iraq for his second tour of duty with the United States Army. He provided EOD support to the 25th Infantry Division in multi-national division north where he bravely and selflessly eliminated IED’s (Improvised Explosive Devices).
This year’s events have made it a very challenging time for most of us. While unfortunately we were not able to gather in memory of Edmond this year, we are so thankful for the continued support and donations from the community.
At this time the pasta fundraiser event will be postponed indefinitely. As a volunteer-run organization, we continue our work to remember and honor Edmond. We are asking for your help in making a donation so we may continue our mission of providing scholarships to Salem High School JROTC students in honor of SSG Lo. Your donation goes towards scholarships to deserving students that personify academic and leadership qualities that Ed demonstrated. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. No donation too small!

On behalf of the entire Lo family, we are grateful for your continued support!
We again thank the community – local businesses, friends and family for allowing us to continue the SSG Edmond Lo Scholarship Fund which is now going into its 11th year. We hope to see you all soon, stay safe and healthy.
We want to thank the community for again coming out to support our cause for the 10th year. Between personal donations, raffles and general admission, we received about $7500 in proceeds which will go to the SSG Edmond Lo Memorial Scholarship for JROTC students again next year and more years to come. David Lacroix and all the other wonderful performers provided the musical entertainment for the event. The delicious meal was again provided by Stachey’s Pizzeria. Several businesses throughout Greater Salem donated prizes to be included for the raffle. It was a successful event and all of it would not have been possible without the outpouring of support that goes into this every year.
This year we will be holding our Tenth Annual Pasta Dinner Fundraiser in honor of Edmond on Friday, May 31st from 5pm-8pm.
Dinner will be served from 5:30-7. Stachey’s Pizzeria has generously offered to donate the food again this year for the event. The Raffle winner drawings start at 7. There are many great prizes available in this year’s raffle provided by local businesses in the community. Join us for dinner, raffles and live music by David Lacroix. We look forward to seeing you at the event this year!
