Honoring fallen soldiers

Memorial Day is to honor and remember. At the Wilmington National Cemetery friends and comrades who paid the ultimate price were remembered Monday morning. Wreaths were laid in their honor and the names of local veterans who have passed away in the last year are read. As the ceremony wrapped up everyone took another moment to remember not only the men that have lost their lives, but also the women. Memorial days are about old battles and long ago losses. And the lesson that freedom carries a price. A lesson you are never too young to learn.
