Remembering the fallen

An American flag flies over a memorial display of 122 wooden crosses on the front lawn of the Albany Mall Sunday during a ceremony honoring the memory of Dougherty County military service members who died in combat from WWI to the present. The crosses were handmade by Bill Brooks, who was assisted by the Albany American Legion Post 30 in erecting the display which will continue through today.

I considered it an honor and privilege playing ball for Post 30 years and years ago. It was one of the ways I tried to honor those who served our country.

As a grateful citizen, I say, "Thank You."

Of course we only pass through this life one time, and for too many the journey was much too short! I thank all those who made the sacrifice and will never see their kids grow up! AND GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
