May 29, 2013 - Oxford residents never fail to pay proper tribute to all the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the liberty and security every U.S. citizen enjoys today. Memorial Day in a small town is like a Norman Rockwell painting come to life, from the Boy Scout standing next to the flag to the veteran with his head bowed in prayer. We are all so very thankful.
