Copiah’s heroes remembered

Around 50 members of the Copiah County community joined veterans and their families for Monday’s Memorial Day Service at Copiah County Courthouse.  Pictured at top are local veterans who attended the service.  Above, Hazlehurst Police Chief Byron Swilley salutes the memorial wreath while William Teasley (center) performs Taps.  Members of the Cherokee Rose Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution displayed the Table for the Fallen Soldier during the service inside the courtroom.  The table is set for only one person and represents all men and women who sacrificed their life in any field of combat.
