Santaquin residents pay respects to veterans in Memorial Day service

"I think this day has been brought about exclusively to pay honor to the over one million men and women who have given their lives in the service of this country over the last 243 years", he said. No matter where you are or what you are doing, I ask every American to take the time to briefly pause and remember the true meaning of Memorial Day with this simple gesture.

This year's theme for Charlottesville's Memorial Day ceremony highlights the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. At noon, it is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day. In a public setting, it's not out of the question that someone in ear shot is numb, tending to a broken heart and expressing their love and respect to someone who left us far too soon in an unfathomable way.

Those who attended paid tribute to thousands of men and women who fought for this country's freedom and democracy.

The never-ending winter and the never-arriving spring suddenly have given way to summer-like sunshine and warm temperatures, which arrived just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend.

It honors men and women who died while serving in the USA military, but to many, it also is a time to remember and honor passed family and friends.

Army Gen. John A. Logan, the commander in chief of the veterans' organization, Grand Army of the Republic, proclaimed May 30th as Decoration Day.

It required the country's first national cemeteries to be established. Their graves were decorated with flowers as people prayed.

"It still has that same significance so for those who can't get to Washingon D.C".

If you go to a cemetery on this day, flowers or some item of remembrance is appropriate. Flags were displayed at half-mast along the routes.

Wreaths were placed in honor of each branch. Over time, the day grew to include all those soldiers lost during the conflict.

Ron Millage says, "I really am pleased that there's as many people that will stand behind the veterans and all those that have served not just those who gave their lives".

The program is held around the veteran's memorial inside the city cemetery. The cause is an easy one around which to rally, and an abundance of graveside ceremonies and other events today throughout the Northland - including the annual Memorial Day parade in West Duluth - offer the opportunity to put action behind our support.
