MARINE MEMORIAL: Memorial Day was May 30. The holiday serves as a remembrance of those who have died in service to the United States, including the Seminole Tribe’s Herman L. Osceola. He was 23 years old and serving in the Marines when he and 28 other military personnel from the United States and South Korea died in a helicopter crash during a training exercise March 24, 1984, in South Korea. Since 2012, a bronze sculpture of Lance Cpl. Osceola has been in front of the Big Cypress gymnasium that bears his name. (Photo Beverly Bidney)
