MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Memorial Day weekend means more than spending time with family and time off work, it's a chance to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Hundreds gathered Saturday at the National Cemetery in north Memphis for the 30th annual Memorial Day Ceremony.

Organizers say the crowds get bigger for Memorial Day every year. There was also a parade and keynote speaker, after which an American flag was posted at each of the 47,000 gravesites. Local boy scouts and American Heritage Girls Troop TN 2011 helped place the flags.
