Pinelawn to observe Memorial Day

May 23, 2012

The Southeast Wisconsin Young Marines are working with a local cemetery to pay tribute to veterans on Saturday.

A "Field of Honor" will be created at Pinelawn Memorial Park, 10700 W. Capitol Drive, starting at 1 p.m., to honor all the fallen heroes who have died since Sept. 11 in the war against Iraq and Afghanistan. Crosses will be personalized with the name of each serviceman and servicewoman.

The Young Marines is an education and service program for kids age 8 through high school age.

In addition, volunteers from the community are asked to join the cemetery staff in placing flags for all veterans laid to rest there, beginning at 9 a.m.
