Virtual Memorial Day programs planned for Minnesota
The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs will hold a virtual Memorial Day program this month in place of live events at the three State Veterans Cemeteries, including Duluth.
The MDVA is partnering with Twin Cities PBS-TPT for a 30-minute program entitled “Always Remember: A Minnesota Tribute to Veterans” that will air on TPT’s Minnesota Channel at 7:30 p.m. May 25.
“The COVID-19 pandemic requires a new approach to our traditional Memorial Day events,” MDVA Commissioner Larry Herke said in a news release.
The program will include remarks from Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and Herke as well as personal stories about those who we honor on Memorial Day and a rifle salute.
