Hope you're having a wonderful Memorial Day and remembering all of our vets and soldiers for serving and many for giving the ultimate sacrifice so we can be free.  It's a beautiful day here in Georgia and our little town came out in full force to honor our heroes.

Woodstock lost a soldier this year to the war in Iraq, Gary Lee Nelson III, who was only 20 years old.
His name was unveiled on the memorial today.

Talking to some of our veterans.

Gary Nelson's family was at the Memorial Day Celebration.  They were honored along with their son.  It was very sad and very moving.
