Lovingston
Nelson County, Virginia

Most of us continue enjoying a long holiday weekend this Monday, but the true meaning of this day is far from a holiday. Sunday, members from American Legion Post 17 and V.F.W. Post 7701 held a Day of Remembrance at Nelson County High School to honor servicemen and women that have fallen to protect those of us here in the USA. Paul Purpura made the trip to Lovingston to grab these images of their ceremony.
