Brainerd Memorial Day ceremony draws large crowd

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

The audience numbered in the hundreds as people gathered in Evergreen Cemetery Monday to honor the lives of fallen soldiers for Memorial Day.

There was no rain, but the sky was overcast, giving a muted light to the wooden scaffold where the speakers addressed the crowd.

Sitting among the graves just before the ceremony started were Millie and Chuck Mulholland, a couple from Brainerd in folding camp chairs. Their son was serving in the National Guard, and had done two overseas tours, one in Iraq and one in Kuwait.
