MARQUETTE, Michigan (WLUC) – ONE of the 3,100 locations is right here at the UP Today a ceremony was held at the Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery. Over 100 wreaths were placed in honor of fallen soldiers. Event coordinator Heather Modell says a day like this is as important as Memorial and Veterans Day.
“But for this national memorial day this is a special day, especially when the families miss their loved ones very much who are now gone, this is a special day when we can remember them and honor them.”
The organization here in Marquette hopes to continue to grow in the years to come.
