Murphy, NC Celebrated Memorial Day at Memorial Park in the heart of downtown Murphy. The traditional service actually started at sunrise this morning with the raising of the Flag and then to half staff.

As the sun was shining and we had a slight breeze around 10:30 everyone started to gather for the Memorial Day Celebration at the Memorial Park. It was a very moving ceremony with the History of the Wars and Uniformed Soldiers marched into formation.  The Murphy Choir did a fabulous job with the song service and then there was the Placing of the Wreaths. Chills as the Honor Guard saluted and Taps was played. After a moment of silence everyone picked up a carnation for the Pass in Review and laid their flower at the memorial. Finally at 12:00 noon the Flag was raised to full staff by the color guard.

It was a great turnout in Cherokee County, NC and good to see so many old and young remembering all the military men and women that have given their lives for our great country. Thank you to all past and present Military personnel that give everything for our freedoms. God Bless America.

Lee and Carol, what a lovely and moving parade you had .... the ceremony with the History of the Wars and Uniformed Soldiers marching into formation would be nice to see.

Very nice!  My Dad served 24 years in the Air Force and so glad we all still remember our heroes.

 This year was especially wonderful, Rebecca. Such a moving ceremony that everyone of every age should attend.

God Bless your Dad and all the men and women that serve our great country. You're so right Alan, these are the true heroes that give their all for so many.
