ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - In preparation for Memorial Day, a group of volunteers cleaned the graves of veterans buried at Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery on Sunday.

“They’re looking at these people’s names. They’re looking at their histories, these veterans,” said Laura Dean, American Legion Post 1, House Committee Chair. “And remembering them as we should, because they’ve paid the ultimate sacrifice for us.”
