LAS VEGAS (AP) — Fallen veterans are being honored across the state as Nevada marks Memorial Day.

The Palm Downtown Mortuary and Cemetery in Las Vegas is hosting its 49th Annual Memorial Day Service Monday in conjunction with the American Legion. The program includes speeches by Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Congresswoman Dina Titus, as well as an honor guard ceremony presented by the Civil Air Patrol and a performance by a bugler.

Palm also scheduled ceremonies at two other southern Nevada locations.

Senator Dean Heller planned to attend a pancake breakfast in Reno for Honor Flight Nevada, an organization that provides transportation so veterans can visit memorials in their honor. Heller also planned to attend an annual Memorial Day ceremony in Fernley.

Other holiday events include Memorial Day ceremonies at the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony.
