Wicomico recognizes Memorial Day, veterans


Two big Memorial Day events were held over the weekend. At the American Legion Post No. 64 on Route 50, Congressman Andy Harris, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, retired Gen. Jim Adkins, Wicomico Sheriff Mike Lewis and County Executive Bob Culver met with veterans.

At the Veterans’ Memorial in front of the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center, the annual remembrance under kind weather conditions.

As part of the ceremony, there was a lowering of the colors by the Wicomico County JROTC, ringing of the Red Knights Memorial Bell, branch prayers, and a volley of arms by the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office.

Veterans, as well as their families, were recognized during the ceremony, including a special family tribute to Gold Star Mothers.
