Memorial Day Observances At Veterans Park In Washington

Memorial Day services took place all over the east Monday, including in Washington where many came out to pay their respects.

Observances took place at 11:00 A.M. Monday morning at veterans park.

As those who gave their lives for the country were remembered, veterans also were being honored. They say they want people to remember that Memorial Day is about more than just barbeque's and cookouts.

Korean War veteran Lorenzo Carter says, "This day means a lot to me because I've got a lot of people that have passed on that didn't have the opportunity to get out here and see this and to veterans today is to honor those that died for us-so if we can't give one hour then it ain't worth it."
