It’s a day dedicated to honoring those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.
Monday is Memorial Day – a day to remember service members who died while on active duty.
Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day dates back to the post-Civil War era honoring Union and Confederate soldiers.
After WWI, it was extended to honor Americans who have died in the all wars.
And, the Bakersfield National Cemetery hosted a ceremony Saturday morning in their honor.
