Locals head to the Northwest Louisiana Veterans Cemetery to pay tribute to their loved ones. Each grave has a flag, in honor of Memorial Day weekend. Some dropped off flowers, while others visited the grave of their loved one to say a prayer.
The original purpose of Memorial Day is to remember the men and women who died while serving in the military.
