Monday, May 30, 2022:  Memorial Day in Brainerd ceremonies started at the Laurel Street Bridge.
A wreath was thrown in the Mississippi River honoring those who died at sea.

Then it was on to the All Veterans Memorial for a short ceremony.

Rain caused the main event to be moved to the Brainerd National Guard Amory.
About half of the crowd is shown here.

Part of the Brainerd Honor Guard.
