Dozens of veterans from all branches of service. gathered a Hill Crest Memorial Cemetery to honor their fellow servicemen and women. The veterans from VFW Post 4588 have been hosting the ceremony for the past 30 years... Korean War Veteran Marvin Muegge has been emcee for the past 18. "It seems to be more every year. The first year we were on the other side and didn't seem like there was about 40 or so people there. But as the years go on, it has more participation," said Muegge. Still, Marvin says many Americans seem to have forgotten what Memorial Day is all about. "Only those that have been in service or have been in service or have had someone in service or," said Marvin. "Had someone who was injured or killed in service those will remember. Most of the rest don't." More than a hundred people who do remember were at Monday's ceremony... Including the Pelow family. "It was overwhelming... emotional," said Jackie Pelow-Staples who was still a little choked up. The Pelows took time out after the ceremony to visit a loved one's gravesite. John Pelow received a bronze star and a purple heart in the Korean War. The family says Memorial Day is a time to reflect on his service and the service of others who gave their lives for our country. "Take one day out of the year to remember guys like my dad. Good Lord... Where would we be without guys like him," said Robert Pelow, who happens to be a Vietnam Veteran. "We have to remember... I don't see how anybody can't." During the ceremony, more than 25 wreaths were laid out honoring our nation's veterans... Serving as a reminder that their courage will never be forgotten.
