Today is Memorial Day. It’s a day set aside annually to remember and commemorate those that fallen while serving and protecting this country. The holiday started after the Civil War to commemorate the soldiers of that war. Memorials started Friday morning in Marion County with a flag raising ceremony at Graceland Cemetery. Veteran Mike Kuhn tells KNIA/KRLS News that Memorial Day is a great time to remember and honor those who have died for our freedom. Kuhn is the Director of Veteran’s Affairs at Marion County.
