As Memorial Day approaches, we remember the fallen heroes that gave “the last full measure of devotion” to this great Nation. Along those lines, on Saturday, May 16th at 11 a.m., a dedication ceremony will be conducted behind Ashland High School to commemorate the sacrifice of Army Sergeant Joseph A. Seaman (AHS 1965) who gave his life in Viet Nam in 1970 and rests in Wildwood Cemetery. Joe was a fine student/athlete who played basketball and baseball for four years, and the School Committee will name the new baseball field for him. Citizens have funded monuments in his honor.
