Today, we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Thank you to all those families of soldiers who have died.

President Barack Obama led the nation in commemorating Memorial Day, declaring the United States has reached "a pivotal moment" in Afghanistan with the end of war approaching.

Communities across the Heartland held ceremonies to honor our country's heroes. Hundreds came out to the Sikeston Veterans Park to honor those soldiers that served our nation.
