Memorial Day is a time for many to reflect on the sacrifices and services of the American soldiers and veterans and the U.S. military men and women and express appreciation, support and prayers. 

Warren eighth grader Alyssa Steinhart  addressed the crowd. 

The words 'United We Stand' and 'God Bless America' still hold the power to stir hearts. 

In closing the ceremony, TAPS was played as the flags were raised and the combined Watchung Hills and Warren Middle School bands played the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
