Troops honored in Memorial Day parades, services
Staff Sgt. Ray Priem, who has served in the Army Reserves for 24 years, spoke at the Memorial Day celebration Monday in Detroit Lakes.
"He wasn't nervous going there (Iraq), but he's pretty nervous right now," Commander David Coalwell said as he introduced Priem.
Priem, who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq, said he missed his son most while being gone. He also mentioned how it is good to be from Detroit Lakes, a community that is so supportive of the military.
