In describing the life of many military members, 1st Sgt. Starlene Hamilton started by reminding the crowd at Boonsboro's Memorial Day ceremony that often those servicemen and servicewomen began their military careers as recent high school graduates. They were probably student-athletes and had a high school sweetheart who either broke up with them when they left or swore would wait for them when they returned, said Hamilton, 49, of Williamsport. While they love music, they also love “the sound and smell of a 16-inch round when it leaves the chamber, especially when it hits black on a target 500 yards away,” she said.

Amick, 54, liked the one-day event so much she returned this year and found some bargains. "This is an incredible buy," said Amick, holding up a large grapevine wreath with silk flowers that she bought for $15.95.
