Lieutenant Colonel James E. Milano, who served four long years in the South Pacific theater during World War II, gave the keynote speech at the annual Memorial Day celebration in Melrose. Without benefit of notes or transcript, the 97-year-old former mayor spoke of vigilance and the neccessity for remembering our past, lest we repeat our mistakes. More than 2000 local residents turned out for the parade, including several bands, civic groups, school children, veterans and local and state officials.
