Memorial Day Honored in Caroline County: Video

The video isn’t great, you can hear cars in the background and someone that was beside me talking, and the camera gets a little jerky because I was trying to record with one hand while simultaneously setting a tripod.

I was a little late getting to the event and I had to find a spot where the camera could actually pick up the voice of the speakers over the cars passing by so the first part starts in the middle of one guy’s speech. He started his speech by talking about how Memorial Day was created to pay respects to those that died in service of this country and how it has gradually become nothing more than a third-day weekend and the unofficial beginning of summer to many people. Part of the problem according to him is that the federal government changed the holiday from being on May 30 every year to being the last Monday in May so it would be a three-day weekend. Anyway, Part 1:
