One of the largest crowds in recent memory gathered at the Macon County Veterans Memorial park for the annual Memorial Day Celebration.
Veteran Navy Captain Tierian (Randy) Cash was the guest speaker for the event.
“Today is a bittersweet day, we get together, we cry, we laugh,” said Cash. “I am convinced if everyone really understood the sacrifice of the one million Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice there wouldn’t be any cars on the road, they would all be here.”
