American Legion Post 338 in Leonardo held its annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 27th to honor those who have fallen in the line of duty. Firefighter Fred Gorsegner, a 50-year volunteer of Middletown Fire Company No. 1, served as the Grand Marshal of the parade while hundreds of residents lined the streets to honor and remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Many thanks to the organizations that participated in this beautiful tribute.

After the parade, there were several speakers at American Legion Post 338 who reminded the community about the importance of Memorial Day and paying homage to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Mayor Tony Perry echoed this sentiment and recognized his guest of honor, Anita Keyser, the sister of U.S. Army Corporal and Medal of Honor recipient Horace "Buddy" Thorne. Perry commended Anita for embodying the spirit of remembering those we have lost and encouraged others to follow her example. This was followed by a laying of wreaths, rifle squad, and playing of Taps.
