Saluting the sacrifice made by soldiers fighting to preserve and protect American freedoms, Memorial Day services were held at four Coon Rapids sites.

Flags were raised, wreaths laid, taps played and gun salutes fired to honor and memorialize local soldiers.

Services were conducted by members of the Coon Rapids American Legion, Coon Rapids VFW and Disabled American Veterans Chapter 39 and took place at Epiphany Cemetery, Joyce Chapel Cemetery, the American Legion Post 334 and VFW Post 9625.
