Bulloch County Honors Fallen Soldiers on Memorial Day: Video

Bulloch County honors fallen soldiers on Memorial Day at a wreath laying ceremony at the Bulloch County Veterans of All Wars Memorial monument. The 2021 ceremony took place at 11:00 AM outside at the monument which is located in front of the Bulloch County Judicial annex on Siebald Street in Downtown Statesboro. The American Legion Dexter Allen Post 90 coordinated the ceremony.
