Memorial Day programs spanned the entire Forgotten Coast, from the Veterans Memorial Park at Beacon Hill in Gulf County, to the Veterans Park in Apalachicola where a detail of the Three Servicemen Statue formed an indelible backdrop to the solemn ceremony. Following the laying of wreaths in front of the statue, the large gathering heard from retired Navy Admiral Mark Milliken, at right, as the featured speaker. He was introduced by his wife, the former Elizabeth Zingarelli, who grew up in Apalachicola and is herself a retired Navy commander.
