Randolph Service Marks 100th Anniversary Of WWI

Randolph area Memorial Day activities began with a short service in East Randolph, followed by a special service to mark the 100th anniversary of World War I at Triangle Park in Randolph. Parade units marched down Main Street to the Randolph Cemetery where people gathered in solemn remembrance to honor the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. This year’s speaker, pictured at right, was Randolph resident Harry J. Uhl, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam from 1966-67 with the 1st Infantry Division near the Iron Triangle. In October 1966, he was awarded the Bronze Star for going beyond the call of duty while in Vietnam. Also pictured, at bottom right, are Bob and Eileen Neal of Randolph.
