Honoring Fallen Heroes

Over 500 people gathered together in Carteret County Saturday to honor and remember loved ones who died serving our country.

The 16th annual Memorial Day service was at 11 am.

The day included singing, a band, and many inspiring speeches.

    Obama will be laying a wreath and speaking at the ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Illinois which is also a NATIONAL CEMETERY. I don't agree with his politics but He is honoring fallen soldiers in another resting place. We have fallen soldiers all over our world. Arlington Cememtery is not the only place and I am glad Biden who has a son in the military will be laying the wreath at Arlington instead. There are 116 ceremonies at National Cemeteries and each and every one of them should have acknowledgement by our administration but that is not realistic to expect attendance by the President at each of them. I'm sorry this day of remembrance is being made political when it hasn't a darn thing to do with politics.
