Memorial Day Ceremony in Valdosta

By  | 

Complete with a 21-gun salute, and a message from the Mayor of Valdosta, visitors and veterans from different military branches came by to reflect on the freedoms our fallen troops have given us.

The theme continued, with many emphasizing remembering those who have fallen and reminding visitors to remember those still serving.

Air Force veteran Vernon Wilkerson says, "we need to think about the guys and the girls across foreign waters, and the reasons why we're there and what we're doing."

State Representative Ellis Black was also there to announce the dedication of Inner Perimeter Road as Veteran's Memorial Parkway.
