World War II veterans tribune planned

The Indiana Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Madison will pay tribute to World War II veterans during a service at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The event is part of an international effort to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in 1945. Around half-a-million U.S. service members, including at least 11,680 Hoosiers, lost their lives during the war.

All World War II veterans and their families are invited to be guests of honor at the service. The cemetery is at 1415 N. Gate Road in Madison.

Speakers scheduled to participate include Madison Mayor Damon Welch and state Reps. Randy Frye and Terry Goodin. Participants in the ceremony will lay a wreath at the base of military service flags.
