Memorial Day had been very busy for us here at the Pacific Battleship Center. Thank you to everyone, coming out for festivities, for remembrance, and for supporting the Battleship IOWA. There were a lot of neat things to experience. But just in case you couldn’t make it out to this year’s Military Appreciation Day, here are some of the highlights:

"Remembrance is a central tenet of Memorial Day, which we observe on the final Monday of May each and every year. But how people choose to honor those who served our country can be complex and private and ultimately of their own choosing. The Los Angeles National Cemetery will keep longer open hours on Monday, May 25, for those who want to spend some time in reflection or deliver a wreath in memory of a veteran."
