Post 28 Commander Matt Bland speaks to the crowd

The American Legion Post 28 of New Martinsville on May 31, 2021, Memorial Day held their annual service at the Greenlawn Memorial Park to honor our fallen heroes that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Post 28 Commander Matt Bland was the speaker for the event, reading a heartfelt speech to all whom gathered at the service to honor family and friends who gave their life for our freedoms.

The Greenlawn Cemetery looked beautiful with flowers and flags on the graves to honor those that have served our country over the years.

Bill Talkington, a veteran himself, said he comes every year to honor those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.

He said that he will continue to come every year to pay his respects. You can tell by looking at Bill’s face, it is a tough day remembering his friends and family members he had served with.

Thank you to all who have served and the men and women that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
