A local soldier took part in the Memorial Day Parade activities in Rising Sun on Monday.
Army Private First Class Brett Bondurant survived an IED attack in Afghanistan but was wounded, losing both legs. PFC Bondurant is a Lawrenceburg High School graduate. He spoke at the Memorial Day service at the Courthouse following the parade. He thanked everyone for coming out to show their support.
"Some don't realize how important this day is to not only myself, but everyone else, every veteran," said PFC Bondurant.
