FULTONDALE — Residents and officials from Fultondale once again fremembered those who have served to defend America, as five names were added to a memorial wall during the city's annual Veterans Day ceremony.

The monument, located in the North Jefferson Veterans Memorial Park on Decatur Highway, now bears these additional names:

As each name was read aloud, a bell was sounded and a white dove was released.

The ceremony also included a wreath laid at the base of the memorial wall by Gilmer Davis, a 90-year-old veteran of World War II and the newest member of the American Legion Post 255 in Fultondale.

The post co-sponsored Monday's ceremony, along with the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6173.
