Hundreds Attend Henderson Memorial Day Service

More than 1000 people showed up to honor fallen servicemen in Henderson's Central Park.

More than 1000 people attended the 68th annual Memorial Day service in Henderson's Central Park.

Featured speaker Colonel Gregory Lowe captured the dual emotions many Veterans feel on this day by sharing a story of sadness when he lost friends in the line of duty followed by the honor he felt when his son joined the navy.

He says today's ceremony brought back memories of when he returned to Henderson following the war.
He told us when he returned from the war he couldn't find any his friends. Then he found all of them on the crosses on display today.

Each cross represents someone with ties to Henderson who has served the country and passed on.
