Remembering the fallen in Woodbury
Community members joined veterans of all stripes Monday to commemorate Memorial Day at the Woodbury Lions Veterans Memorial.
The event, which included traditional laying-of-the-wreath and three-volley gun salute ceremonies, stirred memories of war from keynote speaker William B. Mozey Jr., a retired lieutenant colonel in the army.
The veteran recalled stories from the Vietnam War and remarked on the bond that is formed among soldiers in combat. That bond transcends race and creed, he said.
"We are really decent, great people," Mozey told the crowd.
