Strasburg has no cemetery (to my knowledge), so on Memorial Day we join our neighbors in Bennett to remember those who have given everything so we can have the freedoms we cherish.
The first remembrance was at the Mount View Cemetery at 10:00AM, and the second at the memorial beside the Bennett Recreation Center at 1:30PM. Here is a video from the first one with a couple of biplane flyovers, a 21 gun salute, and taps:
Words can not properly express what we owe the men and women who gave their lives to protect us; nor can they compensate the wives, husbands, parents, and children left behind for what it cost them in tears and heartache.
We cannot thank those who are no longer with us, but we do thank their families. May God bless you and yours this Memorial Day…and may God bless America!
