Retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Arnold Gordon-Bray gave extensive and heartfelt remarks during the Memorial Day Ceremony on a sunny and hot Monday morning at the Rocky Mount Veterans Memorial at Jack Laughery Park downtown.
Mayor Sandy Roberson also spoke during the ceremony Monday.
“As the son, the nephew and grandson of veterans, there is no other place that I’d rather be than right here with you now, particularly with the veterans in the crowd,” he said. “Thank you so much for your service.”
