Transcript: Northern California Veterans Cemetery honors veterans

armed. veterans of the northstate were honored this morning at the northern california veterans cemetary in igo. krcr news channel 7's julia avery was there and has the story...julia jerry, it must have been that day after rain glow...because it was absolutely beautiful out there today. the master of ceremonies, - robert burroughs - said that it is one of the most beautiful spots in northern califronia and rightfully so. at exactly 11 o'clock on 11/11, the ceremony kicked off with a fly over followed by the presentation of colors, and ....my favorite...the musical tribute to the armed forces. the 'sequoia middle school band and friends' played the song for each branch as the respective members of those branches stood for their song. i heard one veteran talking about the goosebumps he gets when he heard the jefferson bagpipe band play. steve trammell's airforce memorial was unveiled for it's first days in the cemetary. it was said that "other branches can go back to the sea or the battle fields their brothers in arms laid down their lives on...but airmen don't have that place". that's why this memorial is so important. i also met a woman who said five of her six siblings were in the military as well as her husband and son.

"oh it means a lot to me to be able to know that we can go out and about and not have to worry about somebody, you know, destroying our country or dropping a bomb on us and stuff. it's nice to know we have protection in the air and on the ground."> the ceremony also included words from preston sharp, retired airman matt morgan, and a national anthem from the miscletoe school concert choir. last week, we showed you the background of steve trammel and the air force memorial. you can find those stories on our website ...k-r-c-r-t-v dot
