Cherry Point ceremony marks 100th anniversary of the end of WWI

CHERRY POINT, NC (WITN) This weekend on November 11th, the world will pause to remember the end of World War I on the 100th anniversary.

Friday Marines from Air Station Cherry Point held their own ceremony to honor those who fought and those made the ultimate sacrifice in the 'great war.'

A 21 bell salute was given during the anniversary event.

Organizers from Cherry Point say taking time to remember those who fought in World War I is incredibly important especially for those who have followed in those soldiers' footsteps.

Cherry Point isn't the only base holding a memorial service this week. Marine Corps bases around the country held their own 21 bell salute in honor of the end of World War I.
