Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Va. -

Local veterans gathered for a service in Arlington, Virginia today. It was held at the Clarendon War Memorial at the intersection of Washington, Wilson, and Clarendon Blvd.

The John Lyon V-F-W Post 3150 worked with the American Legion Post 139 to honor Arlingtonians who have served in the U.S. Military. The Color Guard included JROTC cadets who attend Virginia High schools.

In addition to the annual remembrance ceremony, a special wreath was laid for a 23 year old Marine who died in combat earlier this year.  Lance Cpl. Niall Coti-Sears was killed in Afghanistan on June 23, 2012. Organizers at the ceremony say his name will eventually be added to the memorial.
