Colonel remembers fallen war heroes
Col. Wayne Steele addresses the crowd gathered Monday morning for the Memorial Day remembrance at the airport.
The mournful sound of “Taps” rose from Warren County Memorial Airport on Monday morning following a 21-gun salute fired in memory of Warren County’s fallen servicemen who have given their lives in the name of freedom.“I say remembrance rather than ceremony,” said retired United States Marine Corps Col. Wayne Steele in his keynote address to the nearly 100 people on hand for the annual event. “Because that’s what it is, a remembrance, to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”Steele said the bravery dates back to the Revolutionary War and the Civil War and continues today. “Millions of Americans have fought and died for our country, both on our own soil and around the world,” the colonel said.
