Blustery winds couldn't keep the crowd away at Sheridan's Memorial Day Parade. Beginning at Dow and finishing up at the Courthouse, over 200 people showed up to pay honor and remember our fallen soldiers.

Over a million American soldiers have died since the Revolutionary War and American Legion Commander Jon Berg says it's all about giving honor where honor is due.

A day set apart to honor those who have sacrificed so much for us, Valerie Brutlag, had her two little ones there, Brayden, 3, and Isabella, 2. She says the children need to know.

Sixty-nine year-old veteran Les Meyers, is the Ride Captain for the Patriot Guard Riders. He explains what they do.

For him, Memorial Day is hard to define.

Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday in May.
