DENVILLE, NJ-- As the police shut down roads in Denville for the annual Memorial Day Parade, many ceremonies were held to honor those who laid down their lives for freedom. At 9:30 a.m. the American Legion Honor Guard presented a special Salute To The Dead at the Main Street Fire House. The salute included a prayer, laying of a rememberance wreath, and a gun salute.

As 10:00 a.m. approached, families lined the sidewalks for the Denville Memorial Day Parade. As the parade came down, those gathered were treated to fire engines, the Morris Knolls High School Marching Band, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Denville and the VFW and American Legion. The Mayor also joined in the celebration, walking alongside the Denville Town Council.

The poignant moment of the day came at the end. As the paraded finished up near Gardner Field, many gathered around for a special ceremony. Denville has 19 casualties from the wars over the years, all of which were remembered and honored at this special Memorial Day ceremony. The Denville Cemetery was decorated with flags for all those killed while serving the United States. The special ceremony included another wreath laying and words from Charles Fischer, the Memorial Association President.

Mayor Tom Andes reflected upon the day, thanking those who came out to remember the fallen of not only Denville, but of the entire country.

"Our Memorial Day Parade and services were held to commemorate the service and sacrifices made by all of our service men and women, especially the 19 young men from Denville who made the ultimate sacrifice in order that we may enjoy the American way of life," Andes said.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.
