On hand as the keynote speaker was Ret. Col. Bobby H. Freeman, of Hopkinsville. Freeman is a Vietnam veteran who also served in Washington and many other places around the world.
“Ladies and gentleman and particularly the veterans of all wars, we are gathered here to memorialize those comrades who did not come home with us,” Freeman said as he greeted the 100 plus attendants to the ceremony.
“We’ve come a long way, it’s a day of honor, a day of respect, it’s a day to remember our fallen comrades,” Freeman said.
