Memorial Day an occasion to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice
Monuments to armed services unveiled at ceremony
The Memorial Day Commemoration and Veteran’s Monument Dedication was held Monday, May 30, Memorial Day. It was a somber reminder of the past and present sacrifices made to preserve the security and freedoms that Americans enjoy.
The Marine Corp League presented the flags and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Several appropriate poem readings followed. County Commissioner, Ronnie Beale reminded everyone that Memorial Day was not just another excuse to take a long holiday, or have a party or a barbecue, but rather, was a day of remembrance and respect.
