Albany- For many people, Memorial Day is about traveling, long weekends and barbecues.
The American people have the freedom to do those things, thanks to generations of men and women who fought and died to protect our country.
The members of the American Legion Post 30 started Memorial Day in the way it was meant; honoring the ones who fell so our country would continue to stand.
"It's very important for us to reflect back on those who have given so much," said David Hall, chaplain for Post 30.
They gather to honor the ones who never made it home. But the crowd was smaller this year.
"Because old father time is reaping quite a harvest," said Post Commander David Williamson.
"Over the last two years, we've lost approximately 80 veterans in the Post 30," Hall said.
As they traveled to city memorials honoring all who have fallen in the line of duty, they know it's the ones from World War II they're losing the fastest.
"They were a generation of people who had an inborn sense of Americanism," Williamson said. "They all came home with a patriotic sense that is hard to replace. It was formed in a situation that we hope we never see again."
But what they saw changed the world.
"These men are around us all the time and they carry history with them. And we need to tap that history," said Hall.
Before what's left of our living history runs out, leaving behind a country to enjoy freedom they fought to protect.
