Taps, a rifle volley, and a moment of silence – those were the sounds of a somber Memorial Day wreath laying ceremony at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery on Sunday.

LebTown photographer Cheyenne Tobias was on location to document the ceremony, which was not open to the public due to coronavirus-related concerns.

Cemetery Director John Spruyt made brief remarks during the 15-minute ceremony, which LebTown has included below via YouTube embed.

Spruyt introduced Major General Mark J. Schindler who along with a representative from the Department of Veterans Affairs placed the wreath.

A rifle salute and taps were then played.
