Hudson County to honor the fallen for Memorial Day

The program, which begins at 10 a.m., will honor all those from Lawrence County who have died while serving in the armed forces, beginning with World War I, according to Roger Loosier, of the American Legion Post 25.

Victory for Veterans Organizer Ed Good shared, "I think given it's our first year doing this the effort, it was really successful".

The Fort Smith National Cemetery placed their flags on the graves on Thursday, with veterans groups volunteering for the task.

Following the ceremony, the Byram Township Fire Department will hold its annual Memorial Day Parade. No opinions were offered on the words of F. Raymond Dominy of the American Legion, but The Star included an image of him speaking in front of fidgeting Boy Scouts seated on the Memorial Green.
