Military Veterans and their families gather today at the Veterans Memorial on the diamond in downtown St Mary’s, veterans and their families participating in a wreath laying flag, raising, saying prayers and sharing messages of memory, encouragement and sacrifice.
They say Today is a day to remember and honor those who have served and are currently serving in our armed forces at home and abroad. Think for a moment of the vast numbers. Who never came home but paid the supreme sacrifice on land, sea and in the air.
Consider also a serviceman seriously wounded and or permanently disabled. Today’s event was hosted by the St Mary’s American Legion Post 103 and the city of St Mary’s.
