Memorial Day Event at Military Cemetery
Today, employees of the Anniston Army Depot, military gold star mothers and wives, and dignitaries gave tribute to the men and women who died while giving military service to our country. The Memorial Day event at the military cemetery on McClellan served to allow grateful citizens the opportunity to place American flags at the graves of our fallen soldiers. Today’s participants shared their pride in America as they placed each flag; also sharing that today’s expression of appreciation goes far beyond their actions today. And, that they hope to continue to honor those veterans who served and are still with us. Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day and has been officially observed on the last Monday in May.
