Memorial Day won’t arrive for another week but a ceremony TODAY at the Iowa Capitol begins a week-long campaign to encourage people to stop and salute those who have died for our freedom. Colonel Robert King is spokesman for the Iowa National Guard. The Moment of Remembrance Ceremony will be held at 2 o’clock this afternoon in the capitol rotunda. Colonel King says Iowans could use this reminder about Memorial Day. King says anyone is welcome to attend the service. The ceremony is meant to bring awareness of the true meaning of Memorial Day. The national campaign is designed to encourage Americans to pause for one minute on Memorial Day, next Monday, at 3 p-m to honor and remember the ultimate sacrifices of men and women in the service.
