People throughout Sussex County put the barbecuing on hold for a couple hours and came our to honor the brave men and women who lost their lives for our freedom.

Veterans like Hickman said its a day they stop to remember the brave ones who fought beside them. Men and women who died so future generations could live the American dream.
"It is tough, and I think about them as we have services like this. I think about them every time we have a service; About who I happened to see fall. You know, it's not as much about family but it's family that I lost," said John Mitchell of VFW 7234.
