Ceremonies are planned across the state Monday for Memorial Day. Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs spokesman, Karl Lettow, says they are hosting two pubic events.
The other event is a ceremony at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown, where the Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg will speak. Lettow says volunteers have put up flags throughout the cemetery and the ceremony itself will be traditional. He says it is important to take this time to remember those who sacrificed for our country.
Lettow says the Veterans Cemetery is a great place to honor Iowans.
He hopes everyone will take time to attend a ceremony Monday to remember and be greatful.
Both of the ceremonies will be streamed Monday on the Department’s Facebook page.
