Local cemetery holds special tribute to those who lost their lives at war

WINNEBAGO - (WREX) -

In honor of Memorial Day, one cemetery remembers those we lost in service with a special tribute.

People gathered together at Burritt Cemetery on Sunday, where many military personnel are buried.

Those who died while fighting for their country were named in a roll call. Others joined in singing patriotic music and listening to the Gettysburg Address.

"It's always wonderful to be able to be here and see family again and be able to celebrate the people that we love that are gone," said Suzanne Crandall, a host of the tribute at Burritt Cemetery.

This service has been held every year for more than 120 years
