Small turnout at Lorain’s annual Memorial Day service Evan Goodenow The Chronicle- Telegram LORAIN— America’s war dead and members of the military in general were remembered Sunday in annual Memorial Day services at the Lorain Palace Theater. “ The nation that forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten,” Dan Gillotti, a former Armyfirst sergeant andVietnamWar combat veteran, told about 120 people in the mostly vacant theater. Gillotti, the 2015 Lorain County Veteran of the Year, said those in attendance understood the significance of Memorial Day and the value of military members and veterans, but many people don’t. He asked audience members to speak to friends, relatives and neighbors about the price of freedom being paid with blood. “ Pass on the patriotism that you have to all those around you,” said Gillotti, who served from1960 to 1980, including a year in Vietnam. “ And God bless those that came before us and gave their lives for our country Master of ceremonies Sam Felton, a formerMarine sergeant and decoratedVietnam War combat veteran, also emphasized that Memorial Day is about paying tribute to the dead, not a holiday for barbecuing and picnics. attendance but thanked those who participated. “( They) still believe in our ideals,” he said. so that we may enjoy these freedoms.” nics.

Officers arrested 71 people the night after the verdict, though there was nothing close to the violence other cities have experienced over the treatment of black suspects. But Cleveland is not yet done dealing with deadly police encounters. Two other high- profile police- involved deaths still hang over the city: a boy holding a pellet gun fatally shot by a rookie patrolman and a mentally ill woman in distress who died after officers took her to the ground and handcuffed her. The deaths of 12- year- old Tamir Rice and 37- year- old Tanisha Anderson occurred just eight days apart last November.
