Memorial day may be 10 days away but today was a good time to remember and thank those who served our country.
Salute Our Military Community, Omaha's fourth annual tribute to families of the fallen and all military veterans, active-duty personnel, national guardsmen, reserves and their families took place at the Holiday Inn at 14th and Cuming and at the Creighton-Missouri State baseball game at TD Ameritrade Park.
"There's absolutely nothing commercial, it's very low key. It's just to get the families here and let them know that their loved ones are not forgotten," Organizer Dick Lerner said.
