Veterans Memorial Day
Vietnam Veteran Harold Kelly spent Friday visiting the gravesites of fallen soldiers at Florence National Cemetery. Kelly spent two tours in Vietnam and served in both the Navy and Army and feels that everyone should take time on Monday to celebrate the true meaning of Memorial Day by honoring those soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

FLORENCE- Memorial Day means many different things to many different people. For some, it means the kick-off of the summer travel season, for others, a reason to get together for a back yard barbeque, but for many veterans it means something entirely different- a reason to reflect on the true meaning behind the holiday.
The Memorial Day weekend is often regarded as a way to welcome in the summer season with the first family road trip or get together and is generally one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.
