TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- Plenty of ceremonies took place around town today to honor and remember our fallen soldiers for Memorial Day. KEPR was at Columbia Memorial Gardens in Pasco this morning.

"It's proof that for over 200 years, there's people that are willing to defend freedom and everything that it means and not be in persecution, regardless of what your religion or your nationality or what you believe," said veteran Sydney Haase. "It's the most amazing thing that you will ever do in your life, is give your life for something you believe in."
