Cullman’s annual Memorial Day observance ceremony drew a crowd of nearly 200 veterans along with their families, friends and guests just wanting to recognize those who gave their lives in service to their country.

The ceremony at Cullman Veterans Memorial Park at Sportsman Lake also marked the commemoration of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Never Forget Rose Garden. The new memorial, provided by the Cullman County Lions Club, is to honor the memory of America’s unknown fallen service members.
