Ceremonies honor San Diego’s fallen service members


SAN DIEGO — A sunrise ceremony at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery honored fallen service members and their families on Memorial Day.

The San Diego chapter of the Truman National Security Project hosted the private ceremony with local leaders in attendance. Following a short program, wreaths were laid on the graves of men and women killed in battle.

A second virtual ceremony was planned at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery beginning at 10 a.m.

At the Midway Museum, a wreath-laying ceremony on the flight deck honored San Diego’s fallen heroes. They planned to pay special tribute to those who were killed in the Korean War.

Online or in-person events were also planned in Coronado, Mt. Soledad and Miramar National Cemetery, among others. The San Diego Tourism Authority put together a list with some of the planned ceremonies for those looking for more details.
