Participants in Saturday's Memorial Day program stand in attention during the playing of "Taps."

Col. Dan Tatum was the guest speaker at Saturday’s Memorial Day service held at the Covington Veterans Memorial Park behind Andalusia City Hall.

Tatum said Memorial Day has been at risk of becoming “just another day off work,” but thanks to programs like the one Saturday, continues to be a “single day to remember those who died in service to our nation”
