Communities across the nation took time Monday to remember the men and women who fought and died for their country. At a special Memorial Day presentation at the Barbourville Cemetery, veterans saluted and community members placed their hands over their hearts as Boy Scout Troop #59 presented the Colors and the Barbourville Community Chorus sang the National Anthem.
