The program included an inspirational speech by .former State Senator Steve Langford, a prayer for the fallen by Rev. Harold Willis, pastor of the Hogansville Baptist Church, the laying on of the wreath by 91 years old Dr. Evans W. Molyneaux, Sheriff Donny Turner provided the 21-gun salute and David McKibben played the TAPS. Langford reminded the crowd it has been 132 years since General John Logan, Cammander of Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic issued an order designing May 30 as "Decoration Day"--- a day designed in which the graves of Union soldiers would be deco- rated in honor of their sacrifice to preserve the Union. Today, he said it is call "Memorial Day" a day we honor all who have given their lives for our country during time of war. Langford said it is nothing we can do as a Nation to ade- quately honor those who made the supreme sacrifice. "These fallen heroes have given far more than a grateful people will ever be able to repay," he said. "But, if we reflect on some of the things for which they fought and died, perhaps, we can gain a better appreciation of what they have given us and a better understanding of how we can give honor to them." He said Margaret Thatcher of England once said the United States was unique because it is the only country whose very existence was based on an idea- - the idea of freedom. Langford said that is therea- son more than 4,000 Americans sacrificed their lives during the Revolutionary War. "Their willingness to die for a cause larger than themselves, PREPAID CELLULAR SERVICE MANCHESTER 1140 Warm Springs Hwy.

I.,angford said 85 years later the young nation became engaged in another struggle -- a struggle not over wealth or territory but over the conflict- ing definations of freedom. He quoted President Abraham Lincoln as he said, "The world has never had a good defination of the word liberty. And the American people just now are much in want of one." Four years and 365,000 deaths later, it was determined that in any Nation which pro- fesses to belive in liberty, all men must be free, he said. "World War I cost was 100,000 of our sons and daugh- ters," he said. "World War II took the lives: of more than 400,000 American men and women." He said the cost was high, but the sacrifice restored liber- ty to millions. He said victory over tyran- ny never seems complete. "How do we honor these Americans to whom we owe so much, He asked. "By support- ing the cause of freedom wher- ever it is absent-- whether in Cuba or in South Africa and by supporting a strong national defense-- a defense that will pro- tect freedom wherever it is challenged," he said. Langford said we honor them by keeping alive the dreams of our forefathers-- the dreams of the United States where opportunity is as grand as one's ability to dream and limited only by one's desire to succeed." Langford closed by saying on this Memorial Day, let us vow to honor those who gave their lives for our country, not with flowers alone, but by doing whatever we can "to keep the American dream alive" for ninny generations to come. The Memorial service ended with a reception for the veterans at Gaby's Cafe on Main Street. STEVE LANGFORD (r), former state senator gave an' during the rally. Dr. Evans W.

Cameron Joins Chaplaincy of GBI Reverend Carolynn Cameron of Hogansville has been appoint- ed to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's (GBI) Chaplaincy Program. Reverend Cameron is the associate pastor of St. Paul AME, and is charged with providing spiritual suppor to the employees of the GBI Region 2 Office in Greenville. The office serves 13 counties in West Georgia. Reverend Cameron is among 19 ministers from across Georgia who were appointed recently to the expanded Chaplainc Program. Until now the GBI had three chaplains to assist employees statewide. Supervisors from the agency's 15 regional offices selected the new chaplains, who corfie from vfiried religious affil- iations.,. "The GBI is the type of agency that deals with crisis every day and sometime we overlook the impact it has on our people," said GBI Director Milton E. Nix, Jr. "We appreciate the spiritual dimension the chaplains are going to bring to our organization." As GBI chaplains, the ministers are required to become er- tiffed peace officers through Georgia P.O.S.T. (Peace Officer Standards and Training). With law enforcement training, the chaplains will have a bet- ter understanding of what employees in the field face on a daily basis. Along with being available to employees for counseling the chaplains also are responsible for visiting the sick, attending agency ceremonies and functions, and responding to calls when requested to do so - all on a voluntary basis, with no compensa- tion. Reverend Cameron is a graduate of Hogansville High School, and holds a bachelor's degree from West Georgia College. GBI DIRECTOR Milton E. Nix (L) presents Rev.
