Across America, we pause on Memorial Day to remember the men and women who gave their lives in service to our nation. One event is going on throughout the day at Broken Arrow's Floral Haven Cemetery.

A replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is set up at the cemetery located at 6500 South 129th East Avenue. With the help of the Civil Air Patrol, cadets will hold the changing of the guard ceremony every 30 minutes.
