SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

On this Memorial Day weekend, we must remember what the holiday is all about: remembering those who have given their lives in defense of our great country.

Sunday evening, the Vietnam Veterans of America - Savannah Chapter - held their Memorial Day ceremony at Emmett Park on Bay Street. Organizers of the event say even though it is held by the Vietnam Veterans, the ceremony is not meant exclusively for them.

"It is the day that we remember all of our fallen brothers and sisters from all the wars, and it is important. You should always take the time to remember and take honor today," said Alan B. Harvey, President, Vietnam Veterans of America, Savannah Chapter. 

The Brass Quintet from the Third Infantry Division Band helped to kick off the ceremony.
