Remembrance

World War II veteran Jim Nix talks about a newly placed memorial in West Point, memorializing five soldiers killed during the war and one taken prisoner and later released.

An unveiling and memorial service was held Tuesday, June 19.

Mayor Tramell, West Point city council members and several first responders attended.

Nix shared his memories of his fallen comrades and a bell was rung for each one as their name, rank and cause of death was read.
