Wicomico County Honors Fallen Soldiers

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. -- Memorial Day is a day for backyard BBQ's and fun in the sun, but people around Delmarva stopped to honor those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Monday morning, there was a memorial service at the Wicomico County War Memorial for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Names of the fallen were read aloud, stemming back from World War One.

"We honor 190 men, fortunately no women, who gave their life, whose home of record is Wicomico County, and they game their life in service to this country," Tony Sarbanes, Chairman of Wicomico County War Memorial Committee.

Anyone who wants to honor a family member who ever served in the military could place their name on the tree of honor, located in the Lobby of the Civic Center.
