'This day is for soldiers...'

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

Remembering soldiers for their leadership and sacrifice was a continuing theme during Memorial Day services in New Prague Monday, May 25.

At the St. Patrick, St. Benedict, Lanesburgh, Union Hill, Czech National and St. Wenceslaus cemeteries the names of fallen soldiers and deceased veterans were read and the New Prague Honor Guard sounded a rifle salute.

The honor guard joined others in a parade down Main Street to the main program at the Veterans Memorial in Memorial Park.
