Yesterday’s national recognition of Memorial day honors those military personnel who have died performing their duties.

Ukiah’s Russian River Cemetery adorned sections of their grounds with American flags to honor the fallen and bring recognition to the national day of reflection.

Ukiah resident Cassandra Cain-Bawden said, “realizing these flags were honoring the ones who died fighting for our freedom was very emotional.” Cain-Bawden said she reflected with her mother about “how young some of the men were.”
