Lyle will be Memorial Day speaker

GLASGOW — Not many veterans can say they didn’t accomplish enough during their time in the United States Marine Corps, but retired Sgt. Maj. Travis Lyle can.

Lyle served in the Marines from 1957-60 before enlisting with the United States Army in 1962.

Lyle was selected by Barren County Veterans Association Chairman Robert Travis to be the speaker at the 2012 Memorial Day celebration, which will take place at the Glasgow Municipal Cemetery on Monday, May 28 at 10 a.m.

“I was selected to be the speaker because I am a retired sergeant major with 30 years of military service,” Lyle said. “Bobby Travis asked me if I would speak.”

Lyle has seen many beaches and experienced good times and bad in his 30 years in the United States Armed Forces, but nothing compares to the bonds he made in such stops in Hawaii, Korea and Vietnam.
