The Nevada Veteran’s Coalition will host its annual Memorial Day Service at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley on Monday. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. and lasts one hour.
Memorial Day began on May 30, 1868. The day was commemorated at Arlington National Cemetery as it was originally known as Decoration Day.
