The Memorial Day ceremony hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs will look different this year.
The department is hosting a virtual ceremony to honor those who have paid the ultimate price to keep our country safe.
In an online post, the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs wrote,
“Traditionally, Memorial Day is commemorated with public gatherings at cemeteries like the Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemeteries, churches, and memorials for ceremonies and dedications. We gather as communities to honor those that gave the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country, and in those communal remembrances we find peace and gratitude. Unfortunately, in this time of social distancing we cannot host those kind of events. But we can still remember and honor those who have passed on in a more unique way than ever before – by bringing Memorial Day to you in your own home.”Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs
