Remembering veterans at the cemetery

Posted:
BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA) -

People observe Memorial Day in different ways, and visiting the final resting places of love ones is an important tradition for many.

Fresh flowers, American flags, and other items appeared in cemeteries around the nation today as family and friends tended to the graves of those whose memories live on.

"We all meet out here at least once a year during memorial day and put flowers on the graves and of course clean up a little bit around them and such as that too to keep the tombstones in tact," said Tasha Whittington.

"We just want to give them praise and say we love them and still honor them, even though they're gone," adds Delaney Grose.
