IN PHOTO: During Monday’s Memorial Day service at Keefer Little League Baseball Field, individuals holding onto 286 helium-filled balloons – one for each Pennsylvanian who has died in military actions in Iraq or Afghanistan – release them for a colorful display of the spirit that has made our nation great. The release was organized by Tunkhannock resident Kendra Lynn, whose brother, Steven Tudor, was killed in Iraq. STAFF PHOTO/ROBERT BAKER
