Memorial Day at Calumet Park Cemetery in Merrillville, Indiana…

073

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.
