Cloquet, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Northlanders gathered in Cloquet today to remember our fallen war heroes. The Cloquet Honor Guard gave a 21 gun salute to departed comrades.

Those in attendance presented memorials as well delivered a roll call of deceased veterans.

"Their lives were given, that we might live in freedom. Some veterans have died on the battlefield and others have come back remembering the memories of their fallen comrades,” Deacon, Steve Langenbrenner, said.

Those in attendance ask that we take the time to reflect on the sacrifices that were made and to continue to honor the valiant effort of our fallen heroes not just today, but every day.
