Memorial Day 2015

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the U.S. Marine Corps commander for the Southern Command, John Kelly, led Monday’s wreath ceremony at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum, attended by hundreds of members of the military and veterans.

Four wreaths were placed in the Hudson River next to the Intrepid, and a 100-foot American flag was unfurled.

The Navy also conducted a flyover above the area as a tribute to U.S. veterans and active duty troops.

Kelly spoke of the loss of his son Robert in 2010 while serving in Afgahnistan.
