At Veterans Memorial Park, guests heard from speakers including Colonel Michael D. Foutch, the Commander of the 88th Medical Group with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
“This is a very important day. Each year, we take a pause, take a moment, and we try to remember all those patriots who gave their lives and sacrificed their lives for our freedoms we experience today,” said Mayor Bob Stone.
The Mayor is a veteran himself, and says Memorial Day is one of the most important days of the year.
