About 100 people participated in a Memorial Day service Monday at the Veterans Memorial in Swartz Creek. American Legion Post 294 Commander John Kayanek said it was a fitting tribute to the heroes who gave their lives in service, from the American Revolutionary War to the War on Terror. Kayanek told the crowd to look into their hearts to find their heroes and “examine what kind of country we live in.” Post Chaplain John Gilbert offered the opening and closing prayers, asking the Lord to comfort the families of they who made the supreme sacrifice.
