Today our family celebrated Memorial Day by attending Frankenmuth’s annual Memorial Day parade. Before the parade, my niece and nephew searched the Frankenmuth Veterans Memorial honor wall looking for bricks with the names of their grand-uncles who served our country. Above, they examine the brick of their grand-uncle Willard A. Bernthal who died (non-combat) in 1954 while serving in the United States Army.

Thank you, Veterans, for your service. You are our heroes.
