Fred Luhrs and Kathy Westerfield, of the American Legion Post 189 place a wreath during Monday's Ceremony. An estimated 1,000 people filled the memorial at Riverview Park Monday for the 2013 Memorial Day Observance. As time goes on, fewer and fewer World War II veterans take part in the annual event. The Sebastian River High School Marching Sharks played patriotic music. A handful of World War II soldiers who fought at Iwo Jima, Pearl Harbor and Normandy, stood to be recognized by a thankful crowd. Rudyard Kipling wrote, 'Lest We Forget.' Let's not forget those who have given so much for so many.'
