This Memorial Day, we honor the fallen.
Observances have begun in our region with a ceremony Thursday at Vermont National Guard Headquarters at Camp Johnson in Colchester. A wreath was laid at the Vermont National Guard Fallen Heroes Memorial. The Memorial is dedicated to Guard members killed in the Global War on Terrorism, including Sgt. Jamie Gray, who died when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2004.
“It’s a bittersweet time remembering the losses, but also feeling very fulfilled with all these people that join us to remember our fallen soldiers,” mom Marion Gray said.
Thirty-five Vermont servicemen have died in the war on terror.
