| May 30, 2016

HAHIRA – Dozens of people came out to honor Memorial Day in Hahira on Monday.

“It’s a painful day,” says Ethan Arguelo, a retired U.S. Marine.

On this day, Arguelo remembers his fallen brothers.

“That’s what it is, that’s what it’s all about, my fallen brothers. I was in a platoon of 31 with 7 killed, 6 wounded beyond return,” says Arguelo. “Today’s the day I’m going to think of them and their Gold Star parents. The family that got left behind.”
