Georgians ignored the threat of rain and turned out on Monday to
honor those who served in the military at Memorial Day ceremonies
around the state.
Jack Ferguson, a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II, dressed up in Revolutionary War-era regalia at a re-enactment ceremony in Roswell. He said honoring military service shouldn't be restricted to a few days a year.
At Fort Benning, hundreds gathered under cloudy skies at the main post cemetery. The ceremony included the placing of a wreath at the grave on an unknown soldier and a message from Fort Bennings commander Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero. He said the day holds a deeper meaning than the start of summer vacation.
