In The News:

Young veteran shares his story Fresh off active duty in the United States Navy, which saw him deployed to the Middle East for three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Kyle Sinclair returned to Marshall last month. “The Navy is an awesome career; I’ve enjoyed every second of it,” he said. Sinclair, 27 and a 2005 graduate of Marshall High School, joined other veterans as part of a veterans roundtable event recently at Marshall High School. See story on page 44

Marshall Fire holds groundbreaking ceremony for new fire station The Marshall Fire Department broke ground for its new fire station at 1201 Arms St. on May 22. “The only thing worth saying is that today has been a long time coming,” said Mayor Jim Dyer. “We (the City Council) are holding the shovels, but they (City Manager Tom Tarkiewicz and Public Safety Director Jim Schwartz) are the ones who have done the deep digging.” The $2.9 million building is scheduled to be completed by March 2015.

Word on the Street What does Memorial Day mean to you?

The meaning of Memorial Day

As the nation honors its fallen heroes on Memorial Day, May 26, we asked these six people what the holiday means to them.

Editor’s Note: This column originally ran in 2010 from then VFW Commander-in-Chief Thomas J. Tradewell Sr. Its message is still poignant today.

It’s a sacred day to all war veterans: none need to be reminded of the reason that Memorial Day must be commemorated. But what about the general public, and more important, future generations? Do most non-veterans really recognize the importance of the day honoring their fellow Americans killed in war? Judging from what Memorial Day has become— simply another day off from work—the answer is a resounding no. Perhaps a reminder is due, then. And it is the duty of each and every veteran to relay the message. Sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance. America’s collective consciousness demands that all citizens recall and be aware of the deaths of their fellow countrymen during wartime. Far too often, the nation as a whole takes for granted the freedoms all Americans enjoy. Those freedoms were paid for with the lives of others few of us actually knew. That’s why they are all collectively remembered on one special day. This should be regarded as a civic obligation. For this is a national debt that can only be truly repaid by individual Americans. By honoring the nation’s war dead, we preserve their memory and thus their service and sacrifice in the memories of future generations. They came from all walks of life and regions of the country. But they all had one thing in common—love of and loyalty to country. This bond cemented ties between them in times of trials, allowing a diverse lot of Americans to achieve monumental ends. We remember the loss of loved ones, a sense of loss that takes group form. In essence, America is commemorating those who made the greatest sacrifice possible—giving one’s own life on behalf of others. Means of paying tribute vary. Pausing for a few moments of personal silence is available to everyone. Attending commemorative ceremonies is the most visible way of demonstrating remembrance: placing flags at gravesites, marching in parades, sponsoring patriotic programs, dedicating memorials and wearing Buddy Poppies are examples. Whether done individually or collectively, it is the thought that counts. Personal as well as public acts of remembering are the ideal. Public displays of patriotism are essential if the notion of remembering war dead is to be instilled in youth. As America’s older war veterans fast disappear from society’s landscape, there are fewer and fewer standard-bearers left to carry the torch of remembrance. Such traditions will live on only if there is a vibrant movement to which that torch can be passed.

"It means having fun, spending time with my family and saluting our veterans.”

"It reminds me to appreciate the people who have served our country. It’s also for ‘brats’ and having a day off.”

"It’s for honoring our fallen veterans and thanking them for their service.

Melissa Goodell, Albion

Robert Gutner, Marshall

Sarah Scott, Coldwater

"It’s another beautiful day to be outside gardening.”

"It’s a day to celebrate men who had the courage and the resolve to storm the Normandy beaches to save the free world.”

"Memorial Day is a day to remember veterans and those who served our county.”

Letters VFW thanks community for support for poppie sales To the Editor: On behalf of the members of the VFW Post 4073 of Marshall, we extend our thanks to all those who sup-

ported our poppie sales on May 10 and 11. The people of Marshall have supported veterans for many years and all veterans really appreciate

the effort. We look forward to seeing many people at the circle on May 26 for the Memorial Day service.

Ken Reddick, VFW Quartermaster

Oaklawn grateful to all involved in Hospitality Classic To the Editor: We at Oaklawn Hospital are grateful to the many sponsors, volunteers and participants who made the 32nd annual Oaklawn Hospital Hospitality Classic a success on May 17. Hundreds of participants were involved, including young people from Oaklawn’s HealthYou and 100 Lap Club programs, but roughly another hundred people volunteered their time in so many ways. As a result, we had a streamlined registration process, eagleeyed staff for the start and finish lines and necessary help in providing first aid and refreshments. Such support made our event as spectacular and efficient as possible, and we can’t offer thanks enough. As usual, Oaklawn was the chief sponsor, but vital assistance came from our top corporate supporter, Eaton Corp. Additional thanks goes to Eaton’s Program Manager John Lubis,

who served with his wife Jodi as this year’s honorary chairs. More essential help came from Classic Race Management, the Marshall Historical Society, Monarch Community Bank, the Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance and the many downtown businesses that stepped forward to lend help. Other supporters included BluFish Consulting LLC, McDonald’s of Marshall, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co., Quality Engraving, the City of Marshall and its Department of Public Works and Police Department., FUG Screenprint & Embroidery, Monarch Community Bank, Save-a-Lot Food Stores, Standard Printing & Office Supply, Party Time Tents & More, Family Fare Food Center, WSI Racing, Gazelle Sports, Troup Electronics, Marshall Disposal, State Farm Insurance - Lisa Sands, Flash Sanitation, O’Leary Water Care Services, Dan Stulberg at Marshall

Metal Co., Chemical Bank, the Kalamazoo Growlers, the Battle Creek Bombers, Handle & Hinge, Oerther’s, The Mole Hole, Score Superstore, paper & i, Pastrami Joe’s , Vint-edge, The Plaid Herb, Not Your Average Deals, Girls on the Run, the DeVine family, George Youngdahl, Cub Scout Troop 373 and the dedicated Bike Patrol crew led by Dan Wolin of WSI, Matt Davis and John Coulter. We all know Marshall is the City of Hospitality, and our goal was that visitors to Marshall would enjoy themselves. That goal was achieved, thanks to the many fine people who worked together to make it happen. For that effort, we’re supremely grateful – and we don’t doubt that we’ll see that kind of enthusiasm at next year’s race, too. Theresa Shippell, Coordinator of Hospitality Classic, Oaklawn Hospital

Put Congress on VA waiting list or Obamacare To the Editor: Put member of Congress and the president on the VA waiting list. They should not get medical care ahead of our veterans. Or at least make them sign up for the Obamacare. I am proud and thankful for our vet-

erans, but most members of Congress and the president are overpaid crooks. Instead of letting them fly first class, how about the same as what our troops fly in? Note: I am 73 years of age and I do not receive VA Medical. I now pay a

very high percentage of my income for medical care and insurance. Allan Hayward, US Army 1959-63 Eckford Twp.
