      Albany Technical College held a memorial service Thursday in honor of veterans and fallen soldiers for Memorial Day.

      The service was directed by Kim Robins, the Director of Andersonville National Cemetery. She spoke about the emotional moments and honor she experienced while helping families cope with the loss of a fallen soldier.

      About 200 students attended the memorial service. The Marine Corps League was also there to perform a flag folding ceremony that symbolizes the fight for America and loss of soldiers.

      Robins adds that ATC decided to have the service today because May 30th is the true Memorial Day.
