CARTERET - U.S. veterans who gave their lives for their country were honored in a special Memorial Day weekend ceremony in Carteret.

The American flag at Veteran's Pier was raised and then dropped to half-staff while a bugler played Sunday morning.

Wreaths were then tossed from the pier to recognize the sacrifice. Several World War II veterans were on hand for the ceremony.

Carteret also held a parade Sunday afternoon, and a special dinner for local veterans Sunday night.

More than 1,000 service members from Carteret have lost their lives serving abroad.
