A Memorial Day remembrance of fallen soldiers and honoring local veterans was held in Manchester on Monday. The annual event was again attended by a large crowd.
Something new this year were signs with pictures and names of fallen soldiers and veterans still living in the area.
Ulysses Ray Jr who fought in Japan during WWII accepted the memorial sword passed down by Sgt. Buster Bush who received the sword last year. The Memorial Sword is presented in honor of our fallen heroes who served bravely and gave their lives to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America.
