Remembering Their Sacrifice






The city of Plymouth celebrated Memorial Day Monday with the annual parade, followed by a ceremony at Union Cemetery. Featured speaker at the ceremony was Lt. Alicia Grenier, a field artillery officer with the Plymouth-based Bravo Battery and the first female artillery officer in the Wisconsin National Guard. “People forget that freedom is fought for, not given,” Grenier reminded the audience. Memorial Day, she said, “is about people I’m never going to meet. Today is a day made for those who left ... and never returned. We owe everything we have today to them.” The ceremony included the reading of “In Flanders Field” by Poppy Princess Grace Mooney, selections from the Plymouth High School marching band and concluded with a ceremonial volley by the Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post firing squad and the playing of Taps.
