June 02, 2010 - Residents filled Lakeview Cemetery to honor America's fallen heroes, Monday.

American Legion Post 63 led a Memorial Day parade of locally restored military vehicles and Clarkston High School band through downtown Clarkston to the cemetery.

They presented medals to veterans in attendance, presented the Memorial Wreath, and, for the last time, read the roster of veterans interred in Lakeview.

Next year's ceremony will include a way to honor all local veterans wherever they are buried, said post Commander Barney Schoenfeld.
