Sunset Memorial Gardens invites you to the ‘Avenue of flags’ today. Over 1000 flags are on display, each bearing a name of fallen hero who gave their life for our freedom. This is the 48th year of this event and the first year of drive-thru only for social-distancing. Please take time to drive-thru the grounds and honor those who gave their lives for our way of life. A special Memorial Day message from former Secretary of Defense and retired Marine General, James Mattis, will air at 11am on 102.7 KORD and on the KORD mobile app. You can listen to his speech in its entirety below.
