Coast salutes its fallen soldiers

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - It is always a very moving ceremony at the Biloxi National Cemetery.  Memorial Day is an opportunity to honor those millions who have died in service to our country.

As is the case each year, all 17 thousand graves at Biloxi National have a tiny American flag on them.  And at 9:30 this morning, people will gather near those grave sites to salute America's fallen heroes.

The program will include speeches, as well as a wreath presentation.

The Biloxi National Cemetery is on Pass Road in Biloxi, inside the VA property.
