Several Lincoln Ceremonies Commemorate Memorial Day

Solemn ceremonies were held in Lincoln at both Wyuka Cemetery and Lincoln Memorial Park in honor of Memorial Day. Bouquets of flowers marked nearly every grave at Lincoln Memorial Park Monday morning. Many families were here honoring loved ones, others just wanted to appreciate the many servicemen and women who are buried there.

Brigadier General Robert Bailey of the Nebraska Air National Guard was the key note speaker at the ceremony. With so many men and women still fighting even today, Brigadier General Bailey said he thinks the meaning of Memorial Day hits closer to home for many people this year.
