Veteran's microphone cut off when he discusses Blacks' role in establishing Memorial Day Event organizer turned down sound for part of speech; Speaker says he was censored by Hudson American Legion.

HUDSON — What at first blush appeared to be a short audio malfunction at Monday's Memorial Day ceremony in Markillie Cemetery turned out to be anything but.

Suchan said organizers wanted this part excluded because it “was not relevant to our program for the day," and added the “theme of the day was honoring Hudson veterans.”.

Kemter said he wanted to use his speech to share the history of the origin of Memorial Day.

Afterward, he noted, he received "numerous compliments" from attendees who told him “it was nice to hear the history.”.

He continues speaking, and after about two minutes, the microphone comes back on and stays on for the remainder of the speech.

The audio of what Kemter said can still be heard during the video because there was a shotgun microphone on HCTV’s video camera. »
