Johnny Kimbrough reads the names of the dead.

HOUSTON – The annual Memorial Day program on the Houston Square saw a favorable turnout to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country.

This year's program focused on those killed in the Korean War.

However, they also honored those killed in all other conflicts as well.

They also took time to recognize the living veterans present.

Gary Huffman gave a presentation of the history of the Korean War, often dubbed the “Forgotten War.”

Following the presentation, Johnny Kimbrough read the names of the dead, and the program closed with a moment of reverent silence as TAPS was played.
