“Honor the fallen. Count the cost. Never take their sacrifice for granted.” Those were the words spoken by retired Lt. Col. Vanessa F. Hicks-Callaway during the Memorial Day service held at the Veteran’s Memorial in Yorktown on May 30. DeWitt County Vietnam Veterans #1029, along with Fritz Post #272, American Legion Post #272, Veteran of Foreign Wars Post #8136, and Ladies Auxiliary Post #8136 hosted the event. The day was slightly breezy after a heavy rain earlier before the community gathered to pay their respects for America’s freedom fighters.
