RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

On Monday afternoon, Buddy Carter and Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler took part in the Laying of the Wreath service that included a 21 gun salute to honor those who serve today, as well as those who have given their lives in service to our country.

"Well, the significance of the day is that we honor those who gave their lives in the defense of our freedom while in service," said Lt. Col. Jason Kidder. "The ceremony today is in Richmond Hill, a very patriotic town. They're very staunch supporters of the Third Infantry Division, and the U.S. Army, and all of our soldiers and sailors across the state."

Future Marines from Richmond Hill High School were also in attendance at Monday's ceremony.
