Memorial Day is about remembering the veterans who gave their lives, but one Northwoods city is doing something special to celebrate those lives.
Memorial Day commemorations across the U.S. might look a bit different this year due to COVID-19.
"Its a hard situation," said VFW 1638 Post Commander John Rathke.
Rathke said their day of remembrance is no exception, their annual event held at Merrill HS will not happen this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Due to the coronavirus and everything, we couldn't get the school, so we really didn't know what our goals were," said Rathke.
