Guam - The Memorial Day Planning Committee met this morning at Adelup to discuss the plans for the upcoming annual memorial holiday event at Veteran's Cemetery in Piti. Guam Veterans Affairs Office Administrative Assistant Cindy Gogo says the ceremony will begin with a motorcycle ride into the cemetery followed by a flyover by the U.S. Air Force.

She says they are working with the veterans on Guam to ensure the ceremony to honor our fallen heroes is flawless. "It's a very traditional ceremony and it's a very solemn ceremony that you would have to be there to feel the solemnity of it all," Gogo said.

The Memorial Day ceremony begins at 10am on May 30 at Veteran's Cemetery.
