Former Holliston Police Officer David Sullivan a Marine Veteran came over from Milford. Al Wehr drove up from the Cape and Freddie Bray made the trek down from Maine. The man who donates all the poster board for the Legion's tribute to those killed arrived up from Brewster again donating his time as a cameraman. There would be nearly 70 years in age difference between those represented from different generations and wars on this the 237th birthday of the Marine Corps.

Veterans look on as Dan Volovcin the town's youngest veteran present and John (Babe) Johnson the town oldest veteran present prepare to place the wreath. There were short speeches from Rep. Dykema and Selectman Jay Marsden. Joe Sibotti would sound taps.

Once inside Upper Town Hall the veterans were able to socialize and trade military experiences.

A short presentation period was held and Tony Alexander of the local Knights of Colombus presented a check to the Wounded Warrior Project. Rep. Carolyn Dykema also received the American Legion Post's "A Friend Indeed" Award for her work on initiatives on behalf of veterans. The plaque was presented by Commander Alan Greendale.

The annual dinner is sponsored by the local American Legion, Lions Club and VFW Post.
