Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. It is officially celebrated on the last Monday in May. In our community, however, we have remembrance ceremonies at local cemeteries on the two Sundays before. this is from the ceremony on Sunday 5/22, at Oaklawn Cemetery in Glen Carbon.
Kind of a snapshot, quite harsh lighting, but I always try to catch a few images from this event.
