Leonard "Lenny" Ogozalek, grand marshall of the Summit Hill Memorial Day parade yesterday, spoke briefly during the pre-parade service held in Ludlow Park.
He told the gathering, "We have always been one nation under God, and I pray that we continue to be one nation under God."
Several hundred people attended the service.
The main speaker was Major Donald W. J. Oprey of Fort Indiantown Gap. Major Oprey recalled some of the historic battles in which American soldiers have laid down their lives.
