Remembering…that is what the day is all about. Although we should honor our lost men and women in uniform every day, the country and Calumet Park makes a huge effort to show them our love and respect on Memorial Day. Calumet Park Cemetery has a grand tradition each Memorial Weekend and we work with many veteran groups to stage a special moment of respect for those veterans who have passed away. Shown above is the laying of the wreaths in a solemn moment in which to salute the American Veteran.
