This is the first time that Appleton is back to a fully in-person schedule of events in years. Which is why veterans and Memorial Day organizers said it was so important to remember servicemen and women killed in the line of duty. “To honor all who have paid the price for our freedom in life and blood,” Bob Johnson with the Appleton American Legion Post 38 said during the Moment of Remembrance in Appleton on Monday, May 30. “Whose moms never saw them again. Whose fathers wept in private for their sons and daughters. Whose kids only remember their moms and dads from a photo album.” After a three-year hiatus of the traditional Appleton Memorial Day Parade route and an in-person ceremony at Riverside Cemetery for a Moment of Remembrance, parade organizers say it’s good to be back together again.
