Yesterday, at the Plympton Memorial Day Parade, they honored the Gutowski family who’s son was killed in action in 2011. His name was Steven Gutowski and today would be his 27th birthday. His mother gave a moving speech during yesterday’s memorial ceremony and I was honored to be asked to take a photo of Mr. and Mrs. Gutowski and a close friend of Steven’s.

Every year, Plympton students write an essay on what Memorial Day means to them and the winner reads their essay at the memorial ceremony. Below is a video of this year’s winner. If you can not see the video below, click here.
