Remembering Those Who Served

Posted: Updated:

While many think Memorial Day is just a long weekend, some were following the true meaning by honoring those who have fought for our freedom.

The American Legion Post 510 in Nicollet held a Memorial Day ceremony this afternoon.  Those who served, as well as family members, shared their stories of giving the ultimate sacrifice.

The Gettysburg Address was read to those in attendance, honoring Veterans from all wars.

"If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the freedom that we have today," says American Legion Post 510 Member Bruce Connelly.

In addition, there was also a display set up of wartime memorabilia honoring those who served.
