Soldiers who died while serving in the armed forced were honored Monday by a large gathering at the Lexington National Cemetery, where visitors paid their respects during a special Memorial Day ceremony.

Included in the program were a presentation of the colors, a playing of "Taps" and a salute by a firing detail.

Congressman Andy Barr was also on-hand to speak during the patriotic remembrance.

The Lexington National Cemetery is the final resting place for many military men and women, dating back to the Civil War.
