AUDIO: Memorial Day observed in Janesville

A large gathering of the faithful stood patiently, or sat in folding chairs, on the Veteran's Plaza of Traxler Park in Janesville Monday for Memorial Day ceremonies.  Keynote speaker, City Manager and retired Army Colonel Mark Freitag, talked of how special the community was in the manner it supported veterans.  He also encouraged younger veterans to join service organiztions including the VFW and American Legion, to continue their long standing traditions.  Patriotic Society President Tom Stahura foreshadowed two new monuments planned for construction this summer on the plaza.
