Thanks to all the local veterans and their various organizations that helped mark Memorial Day in so many ways on Monday.
The services conducted in many area cemeteries and at local memorials were a honorable tribute to those soldiers who served to protect our freedoms.
There were parades, bands, singing, speeches and all sorts military honors offered in many hollowed spots around the Gogebic Range. This doesn’t happen without the planning and participation of hundreds of volunteers.
Family and friends of the honored, as well as many other community members attended these events — each honoring the soldiers by the reverant presence.
Thanks to our local veterans for the service to our country and for their efforts to make these annual Memorial Day services happen.
