As notes of patriotic music floated on the cool breeze, area residents and dignataries gathered at the historic Pecan Grove Cemetery to pay tribute to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the service of the Nation on Monday morning. The Memorial Day ceremony, “That They May Never be Forgotten,” is held at the cemetery annually.
U.S. Congressmen Ralph Hall (R-Fourth Dist.) and Sam Johnson (R-Third Dist.) were among the dignataries who addressed the crowd that gathered.
“This Memorial Day weekend we honor all our servicemen and women who have fought and sacrificed for our country throughout our Nation’s history – and all those who are fighting today both at home and abroad,” Rep. Hall said.
