FT. INDIANTOWN GAP, LEBANON COUNTY—About 1,000 people honored veterans and service members who died in America's wars during a special ceremony at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery on Sunday.
It was the 28th annual Memorial Day Program featuring special musical and military tributes to the fallen as part of a program at the Pennsylvania Veterans Memorial.
The cemetery's entrance was lined with more than 5,000 flags -- one for each service member killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The program is organized by the Memorial Council of the Indiantown Gap National Cemetery.
"A lot of us who are veterans, we've done our duty, and we continue to do our duty by doing things like this," memorial council chairman Robert Hauser said.
The memorial council gets no money from the government, Hauser said.
Instead, its annual ceremonies are possible because of private individual and business donations.
