FORT BLISS, TX (KTSM) – The Department of Veteran Affairs’ National Cemetery Administration (NCA) hosted its first public Memorial Day ceremonies since 2019.
Ceremonies were not open in 2020 or 2021 to limit the spread of COVID-19.
El Pasoans made their way to manicured grounds to visit family, relatives, or friends laid to rest at the historic cemetery.
American flags, placed over the weekend by armed forces members, fluttered in front of each of the brilliant white headstones, marking the final resting place of loved ones.
