Robertson invites local veterans to Senates Annual Memorial Day Service

LANSING—The Michigan Senate will hold its 17th Annual Memorial Day Service in the Senate chamber Thursday, May 26, announced state Sen. Dave Robertson.

“Memorial Day is a special occasion for all Americans to recognize the service of the men and women of our armed forces, and to remember their sacrifice for our freedom,” said Robertson, R-Grand Blanc Twp. “I invite our local veterans to join us in honoring our fallen heroes.”
