Once again Columbia VFW Post 6097 put together a wonderful Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony.
A large crowd was in attendance and as they did last year, most of the event was held inside the air conditioned building with the color guard, the gun salute, the playing of taps and the laying of wreaths being held outside at the monument.
During his address, Raymond Martin referenced the names on the monument several times.
The monument at the entrance to the fairgrounds contains this statement: "Honoring all who served and dedicated to the memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice..."
For those who have loved and/or served with a military member who has been lost in his or her service to their country, no special day or service is necessary to remember.
For everyone else, today is the day set aside for us to pay tribute to all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our great nation.
