EAST GREENBUSH - Tributes were paid to the service men and women who died fighting for our freedoms. 

Red Guynup, an East Greenbush resident, showed up to the Memorial Day Parade on Saturday to show his support. Red's father made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II.

"It's good to support us and the rest who never made it home. I pray for them" he said. 

Red followed his father's footsteps enlisting in the Army and later fought in Vietnam. Now returning home, he's making sure his great nephew understands the true meaning of the holiday. 

Nearby, a gentleman is helping direct traffic with the East Greenbush Police. It's later discovered this man, Dennis Davis, also served with the Marine Corps. 

"I went through basic training. Wound up in Vietnam for 13 months and it's something that had to be done" Davis said. "Look up to your veterans, always be there for them when they need your help, and support them."
