Today, gratitude for those who have served our county could be felt all across Minot, including Roosevelt Park.
This afternoon, the official flag raising and relighting of the North Dakota Medal of Honor took place at Roosevelt Park to acknowledge veterans.
Local Medal of Honor recipient Clint Romoshay was present at the ceremony.
The ceremony also drew state leaders or their representatives to the podium to offer some words in honor of those who have and still do serve our nation.
The Medal of Honor Memorial recognizes veterans that have received the highest level of honor in the military; however, today's ceremony was dedicated to veterans all across the state.
(Ron Merritt, Minot Park District Executive Director)"It's nice that we have the state memorial right here in Minot, North Dakota, so it's kind of a special day to honor the veterans that are named on this memorial and to thank them for their service and wish them well."
This is the first time the ceremony has taken place at the Medal of Honor Memorial since the 2011 flood.
