By Meg Bonacorsi
As you know, it is Memorial Day and local leaders are reminding folks to remember the true meaning of the holiday.
The McLennan County Veterans Association hosted a big Memorial Day ceremony at Waco Memorial Park.
Hundreds attended this morning's event. Representative Bill Flores was one of several speakers. He asked folks to remember the fallen today - especially the eight men in his district who have died since Flores took office.
He said, "All eight of these men laid down their lives, not only for their friends and their families and fellow soldiers, but for this country and for our freedom and we are all humbled by their service."
The ceremony also included bagpipers, a 21 gun rifle salute and veterans wreath presentations.
