BALTIMORE — While Memorial Day is a holiday, it's a somber one. Created to honor the soldiers who have died defending our country.

That's what was happening at a ceremony in Reisterstown today, where flowers were placed on the graves of soldiers at the Reisterstown Community Cemetery.

It's where a traditional Civil War Memorial Service was held for the soldiers interred there.

We spoke with one man who's father served and whose son just finished serving in the marines.

He says to him, Memorial Day means honoring those who were brave enough to defend America.

This was the first chance the cemetery has had to hold a public ceremony since 2019, before the start of the pandemic.
