Statesboro salutes fallen heroes
Memorial Day service honors those who died for our country
W 052812 MEMORIAL DAY 01
Capt. William Anderson, U.S. Navy ret., salutes the fallen after his keynote address during Monday's 2012 Memorial Day Observation at the Averitt Center for the Arts.
Reflecting upon the day as he prepared to perform patriotic music for Monday’s Memorial Day program, Dr. Michael Braz said “We celebrate Veteran’s Day, but we commemorate Memorial Day.” Many may confuse the two holidays, but it was clear during the program held in the Emma Kelly Theater at Averitt Arts Center that fellow veterans and other citizens were remembering fallen heroes. Hosted by American Legion Dexter Allen Post 90, the program included words of remembrance, military songs and an intonement of names of Bulloch County veterans who lost their lives during wars.
