Fallen heroes remembered at Calverton
Hundreds of people gathered at Calverton National Cemetery on Memorial Day to remember those who gave their lives for their country.
The family of Army Pfc. Garfield Langhorn received a wreath in his honor at the cemetery.
Langhorn, from Riverhead, was just 20 years old when he sacrificed his life in Vietnam by lying on a grenade to save his fellow soldiers.
Other families visited grave sites to lay down flowers and flags in a somber reminder of just how many lives were sacrificed in the name of freedom.
