Residents from across Merced came together at the Merced District Cemetery on Memorial Day to honor those who have served the country. The ceremony brought together speakers, songs, prayer, as well as a flag-raising ceremony, a 21-gun Salute, and the playing of “taps”. Hosted by the American Legion Post 83, Monday’s Memorial Day service was highlighted by United States Army Special Forces veteran Randy Lane who served as the event’s keynote speaker.
