Following the last couple years of smaller Memorial Day services at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery due to coronavirus concerns, this year’s 40th annual ceremony will once again be open to the public.

The program will be held, rain or shine, at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 29, in the cemetery, located on the grounds of Fort Indiantown Gap.

Cemetery director John Spruyt will once again welcome the audience, with American Veterans (AMVETS) former department commander Bernie McDonald delivering the Memorial Day address. Joseph Snyder, Memorial Council trustee, will serve as the master of ceremonies.
