"To our fallen comrades, we salute you for all you have done. Your courage has kept us safe. Your sacrifice has kept us free," said Michael A. Mikulich, master of ceremonies and member of the VFW post 165 and American Legion Post 341.
Major Larry Googins, USAF Retired, was the guest speaker. At the end of the service, the crowd moved to the bridge to toss a wreath in order to pay respects to fallen comrades who lost their lives at sea.
