MEDICAL LAKE, Wash.- Tuesday afternoon there was a quiet ceremony at the Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake.

Veterans who have long passed away were finally remembered, honored for their service, and recognized with full military honors. The names of 76 different veterans were read aloud. After each name a single bell was rung once in their honor.

We spoke with Darlene Rock who was at the ceremony remembering her father Arthur Ross Starr. Starr served in the army during World War Two. Rock told us she was happy her father finally received the honor he and all other veterans deserve.
