Remembering Heroes

ST. MARYS — According to the Rev. Ed Bray, war is insane, a fact that the greatest warriors know, and warriors face battles to restore sanity.

“It is up to those great warriors to engage the battles against the insanity — where they feel the heat, where they feel the pain, where they experience the taste of their own blood, where they take their last breath of life in order for sanity to once again prevail,” Bray said to a crowd gathered in Elm Grove Cemetery Monday morning for the annual St. Marys American Legion Post 323 Memorial Day Service.
