The annual Monday morning ceremony in Arbutus honoring America's veterans lasted less than 30 minutes. But for some in the small crowd that gathered May 30 near the flag pole at the intersection of Oregon and Carville avenues with Sulphur Spring Road, the service took them back years. "I think about all the boys we lost over there," said Nick Brocato, who served in World War II and is a 15-year member of American Legion Dewey Lowman Post 109 that sponsored the event. That sense of loss was shared by Arbutus resident Steve Thaxter, who has attended the event every year since moving to his home on Carville Avenue in 2004.
