Veterans and fallen heroes were honored in Wausau Monday morning.
People gathered at the Restlawn Memorial Park to watch a ceremony with patriotic music and a reading of names.
Organizers said events such as this help remind people of the sacrifice many servicemen and women have made.
"You really can see in people's eyes that this is, it brings back the burial for their loved one that they had in the past and once you know that look, you can see it on everybody's face," said Corey Lark.
Organizers said more than 200 people attended this year's event.
