Pocahontas, VA (WVVA) -

For the first time in 15 yrs, the town of Pocahontas held a celebration to honor those who sacrificed all for our freedom.

The celebration was kicked off at noon with a parade around town, followed by a moving service explaining the significance of why we observe Memorial Day.

The town also recognized Commander Kenneth Franklin of the American Legion Post 14 for his service, and for being the Commander of the post at both the organization's 50th and 100th anniversary.
