This past Monday, May 30, the Chester County community gathered together for Memorial Day to remember and honor those who gave their lives in service to the people of the United States of America. The Henderson, TN American Legion Post 157 hosted a Memorial Day ceremony at Henderson City Hall to honor the fallen heroes of the nation. The ceremony included a Memorial Day Tribute video, proclamations from the city and county mayors, the narration of the poem “It is the Solider” and videos about the overseas United States cemeteries. Additionally, Stark Davis, LTC, U.S. Air Force (retired), pictured above, gave remarks about why we have this national holiday. “These we honor had a love for others, had a love for the United States, had a love for us. And they died so that we may live in freedom from tyrants who would deny our core freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Davis said.
