Memorial held in Sumiton to honor war heroes

SUMITON, Ala. (WIAT) — A memorial celebration was held in honor of America’s war heroes in Sumiton on Monday morning.

About 50 people turned out for the sixth annual event that was held at the war memorial site in front of the community center.

The flag was lowered to half-staff, and many visitors got a chance to see the latest monument which was installed about a year ago.

Organizers say the event is a great opportunity to meet with other veterans.
