SEMINARY, Miss. - Seminary had its annual Memorial Day service Monday where dozens of people honored those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Seminary has lost more service members in wars per capital than most cities.
District 90 State Representative, Noah Sanford said, "It's important to remember because without them we couldn't be able to gather here today freely, and I think we all have a part to do in keeping the country worth fighting for. This is a very strong, very patriotic community that is always supportive of its veterans."
Sanford said 17 Seminary service members have died in battle between WWII and the Vietnam War.
