Approximately 175 people attended the Barnesville Memorial Day program at Veterans Memorial Plaza.

Pictured, top, is Rev. Tom Detling who filled in for scheduled speaker Rev. John Partridge. Detling also spoke at Bethesdas Memorial Day observance.

Detling spoke about sacrifice and took the opportunity to acknowledge Vietnam veterans and how they were treated at the time.

If you are here and you are a Vietnam vet - welcome home, Detling said.
