For Those Who Gave Last Full Measure – Old Glory fluttered proudly over Riverside Cemetery in Mineral Ridge Sunday as veterans, officials and residents gathered again in the annual Memorial Day salute to the dead of all wars. This same scene is being repeated on the holiday today in Youngstown and all over the country. At Mineral Ridge, the service was preceded by the traditional parade of 26 unites. In the quiet cemetery, the American flag flies alongside a Veterans of Foreign Wars banner with men of Coitsville Post 7600 VFW providing the color guard.
