Forest Lawn Memorial Park Holds Virtual Celebration To Honor Fallen Soldiers
A number of commemorative services are being held to honor fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, including at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
This morning, a virtual celebration featuring patriotic performances was held at the cemetery's Glendale location. The celebration was streamed on the cemetery's Facebook page.
James Fishburne, the director of the Forest Lawn Museum, says it's important to hold the event, even if the public can only experience it online. Fishburne told us:
“We've been doing a Memorial Day celebration since 1915. It's important to keep that continuity and to keep that sense of community even if it is virtual, so that it's easier to pick it back up when we can all meet again in person.”
