Veterans, history honored in Agawam parade

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – The town of Agawam held a large parade on Main Street Monday morning, to honor of those who gave their lives for our freedom.

A gun salute brought cheers from the crowd, as a parade marched through the center of town.

Lou Massoia, who spent two Memorial Days serving in Korea, told 22News that he holds a special place in his heart for Memorial Day, because it means remembering friends he lost.

“Memorial Day means remembering all my buddies and everything that were left there and ones that got wounded and killed during the war,” Massoia said.

A marching band brought music to the parade, which featured members of the military among its marchers.
