North Dakota Veteran’s Cemetery Memorial Day Ceremony
The North Dakota Veteran’s Cemetery Memorial Day Ceremony is an annual tradition, but this year, there’s a bit of a twist.
Like usual, the ceremony will be held in Mandan at the cemetery and will begin at noon. However as Valley New Live reports, this year’s ceremony will have a theme.
This year at the cemetery they will commemorate Vietnam War veterans specifically.
Additionally, for years the ceremony had a helicopter flyover which stopped happening around 2007 or 2008. This year, the helicopter flyover is returning.
There will also be about 500 bikers riding from Bismarck over to the ceremony.
The ceremony takes place at the North Dakota Veteran’s Cemetery at noon on Monday, May 30.
