The Freedom Memorial in Jonesville Michigan was the site of a well-attended service on Memorial Day. Hundreds of locals turned out as fallen local soldiers from the Vietnam War era were honored.
Guest speakers from different branches of the military spoke about honor, duty, and sacrifice. They reminded the crowd of the need to acknowledge the job soldiers do to allow freedom to exist in our country and in many other places around the world
The Freedom Memorial is located at the Sunset View Cemetery on highway 12 at the East end of Jonesville. The memorial was conceived, funded, and built over a very short period of time for its completion in 2008. It is an ideal site for a gathering of a good size crowd remembering soldiers who gave their life in the line of duty.
