Vietnam veterans and their families were among those who attended Sunday night’s ceremony.

They remembered and paid tribute to their fallen brothers and sisters.

More than 58,000 Americans died in the Vietnam War.

“Give rest to those who laid down their lives and to the survivors who never fully regained their lives because of terrible wounds or the terrors of war.”

Sunday’s ceremony featured a special flyover.

It’s been tradition to have a military flyover, but the military couldn’t do it this year due to budget constraints.

A local couple stepped in to help by using their own World War II-era biplane.

The flyover symbolizes a search for those still missing in action.
