Kansans, Moran, honor fallen on Memorial Day

Senator Jerry Moran

(KAIR)--The nation, on Monday, recognized Memorial Day, including ceremonies held locally in Atchison County cemeteries, as the Fleming-Jackson-Seever American Legion Post 6 and Lt. Jared Fox Jackson VFW Post 1175 honored their comrades, complete with a flag presentation with 21 gun salute, and the playing of Taps.

Among those remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice was United States Senator Jerry Moran, who took to the Senate Floor to recognize Sergeant John Herrick, a young Kansan who died during World War II.

Moran, a Kansas Republican, is the ranking member of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee.
