A somber moment at leavenworth national cemetery.

Hundreds gathering to honor fallen heroes.

Friends... family.... and perfect strangers... participating in wreaths across america.

Torok says: "its wonderful to be here amongst all the servicemen.

Im just honored to be here."

Ernie torok retired after thirty years in the army... he came with his family.

These parents from platte city brought their children... who say - it meant so much to honor these veterans.

Leslie gramkow served in the army more than twenty years.

Gramkow says: "i think having served there is a special bond with those who have also served, and speaking for myself and my family, its not just a job its a way of life."

His daughter brought him today.

Gramkow says: "you just have that bond because you know what these deceased veterans lived through in their lives as well during their time of service, however long or however short."

Both gramkow and torok say even though it's not memorial day... it's a day to reflect on the lives of men and women just like them.

Gramkow says: "its kind of a bit of giving back in a sense, and also you know knowing that this could be you at the end of your life here as a deceased veteran."

Torok says: "just because its something we can do to honor these people.

Hopefully some day someone will honor me for my service."
