"Local veterans - and those who lost their lives in the armed services - were honored Friday in the lead-up to what was called the most solemn of days.
The town held its annual Memorial Day breakfast at the Franklin Senior Center that morning, giving special recognition to Korean War veterans in town.
Veterans Agent Dale Kurtz said the day’s purpose - to honor those who had died in war - is often forgotten by the public.
“I keep getting pictures in my mind of the fields of crosses in Arlington National Cemetery, at Gettysburg, in France and at West Point,” he said. “These are reminders of the sacrifices our brothers and sisters at arms have made over the years.”
