Memorial Day Ceremonies Throughout the Coastal Bend

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - People gathered Monday morning in memory of those who served their country at a special Memorial Day ceremony at Sherrill Park, but that wasn't the only event honoring veterans on Monday.

Students in the Odem Independent School District did not have the day off from school. They were making up a day missed earlier in the year due to a weather related cancellation, but they used their time Monday to learn the true meaning of Memorial Day.

At the Coastal Bend Veterans Cemetery, a somber remembrance was held to remember those who served. Kiii News Photojournalist Preston West captured the event on his camera.

At the HEB on Alameda and Roberts, a special Memorial Day ceremony was held to honor those who served our country. It included refreshments, patriotic music and a moment of silence. They also honored HEB partners who served in the military.
