Cedar Key remembered the soldiers lost in its defense in a stirring Memorial Day ceremony Sunday at the cemetery.
Hosts Ivan Chubb, of the Tri-County Marine Corps League Post 1018, and Cedar Key's Patty Steve, mother of the late U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Brian Rory Buesing, killed in Iraq in 2003, addressed the 50-some attendees, asking them to always remember the cost of America's freedom.
Afterward, Steve said misunderstanding the cost of freedom has grown worse over generations.
