Our Views: Thanks to the soldiers who gave the last full measure to our nation
Placeholder Image
In the aftermath of one of our nation’s bloodiest battles, President Abraham Lincoln described the ultimate sacrifice of all the soldiers who died at Gettysburg as the “last full measure of devotion” in his famous address. Today, nearly 147 years later, the names of 64 Bulloch County residents who gave their “last full measure” will be intoned during Bulloch’s annual observance of Memorial Day. The 64 died in military service since World War I and each will be honored during an 11 a.m. ceremony inside the Emma Kelly Theater at the Averitt Center for the Arts in Statesboro.
