Yesterday a moving candlelight service was held for the fallen in the Veteran’s Memorial park in Richmond Indiana.  Many turned out to honor those who made the greatest sacrifice for their country, including family members of the fallen.

The most poignant times of the service were the soldiers who visited the wall, leaving roses at the sites of the names on the wall, as well as the family members who took park in a reenactment of a moving story about visiting the wall.

Below is a video of part of the ceremony.  More pictures can be found on the Go Wayne County facebook site as well as more video on the GoWayneCounty youtube.  The wall will be available to view through Sunday. (see video below)
