memorial day in delaware

We'd like to give our thanks to all of those who have served to protect our freedoms.

One Delawarean is being recognized for his service by being admitted to the Ranger Hall of Fame, as its 165th member, joining such people as Revolutionary War hero Francis "Swamp Fox" Marion, Confederate Col. John S. Mosby of Mosby's Rangers and Brig. Gen. Frank Merrill of World War II's Merrill's Marauders. Congratulations, Charles R. Laws Jr., and thank you.

For the past 68 years, Memorial Day has been recognized by a parade in Newark. This year may have been its last. I hope that tradition doesn't end.
