Memorial Day honors the brave men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, typical commemorations were off the table in 2020.
Even though the Monona Memorial Day parade was canceled, local Boy Scouts found a way to honor those who gave their lives for their nation.
Ninety-five-year-old retired Brigadier Gen. Lewis Harned and his daughter Linda continue to carry on a Memorial Day tradition for veterans to make sure no fallen member of service is forgotten.
MAY 25, 2020 5:00 a.m. THE NBC15 FIRST ALERT FORECAST FROM CHIEF METEOROLOGIST CHARLIE SHORTINO: We have another warm day coming up for this Memorial Day. Highs are expected in the low to mid-80s for the southern part of the state. We will also have higher humidity levels in place as the dew points will be in the 60s through the day. A cold front is situated to the west of here but it will remain nearly stationary for the next couple days. There is very little chance of rain today and if we see any, it will be a brief shot. Rain chances increase tomorrow and Wednesday and rain will be likely both afternoons.
Happy birthday from NBC15 and the Wilderness Resort!
