Remembering our Soldiers
To those American servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, we remember them on Memorial Day.
While we honor them with parades and barbecues and a federal holiday, we also thank God, because freedom isn't free.
Selmians will commemorate our war dead today with an 11 o'clock ceremony at Memorial Stadium. At 3 p.m., everything including traffic, will stop for one minute. Sirens will sound throughout the city and county, and people are asked to stop and observe a moment of silence as part of the National Moment of Remembrance.
This exhibit of military uniforms from various wars and branches of service is on display at the Vaughan-Smitherman Museum.
