Rotarian & former Lt. Col. Jim Tepper, who served our country as a Marine helicopter pilot in Viet Nam and subsequently in the Marine Corps Reserve, was selected to be the grand marshall of Westborough's Memorial Day Parade. Jim gave a heartfelt and emotional speech during the town's Memorial Day ceremonies, reminding us that more than one million armed service members have lost their lives protecting America's independence.  He pointed out that the freedoms of speech, religion, and press, along with a right to fair trial, are not guaranteed by clerics,  journalists, lawyers, poets or writers, but that these rights and freedoms are guaranteed by men and women in uniform willing to pay the ultimate price to protect them. We thank Jim for his service to our country and are honored to have him as a member of our Club. See Paul McGrath's photos of the Memorial Day ceremony by clicking here. Watch Jim's speech, along with the entire ceremony, by visiting Westborough TV.
