Memorial Day ceremonies in Lawton-Ft. Sill

Posted: Updated:
LAWTON, Okla_For many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, but the true meaning of the holiday is to honor those who have given their lives for our country.  

The first of three memorial day services in Lawton-Fort Sill is at ten Monday morning. That's when friends, loved ones and fellow service members will gather at the Fort Sill National Cemetery in Elgin to remember our fallen heroes.  

Then at 11:50, Major General Mark McDonald will host Fort Sill's annual Memorial Day ceremony at the post's cemetery 

Lawton's Sunset Memorial Gardens is also hosting a Memorial Day service this holiday. It is set for two o'clock in the Veterans' Field of Honor. This year's featured speaker is representative Ann Coody of Lawton.  

You can count on 7NEWS for complete coverage of these events.
