SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Memorial Day ceremonies are underway across western Massachusetts honoring those who have sacrificed their lives to protect our country.
Residents have come to remember our military men and women at parade routes and to pay their respects during services at memorials and cemetery sites in their community.
