“That dark space that you have in your heart right now, we in the state of Mississippi would like to light that up right now. We pay tribute to you as well in these days and times. It is tough out here,” said Sheriff K.C. Hamp.
Memorial Day will be celebrated on Monday, May 25 and some soldiers with the Mississippi National Guard are hoping Pine Belt residents will not only enjoy the holiday with family and friends, but also remember the nation’s fallen heroes.
Historians hope that Pine Belt residents will learn more about World War I from the film, and they hope you’ll visit the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby to learn about the Mississippians who served in that conflict.
