Local Memorial Day ceremonies pay tribute

Several local services gave residents an opportunity to take pause and honor those who have died serving the U.S.

The Del Mar Community Memorial Day service at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church featured guest speaker Capt. Brian C. Schexnayder, USMC, who is on active duty at Marine Corps Recruit Depot.

The city of Solana Beach and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5431 hosted the annual at La Colonia Park, and crowds gathered at Mount Soledad in La Jolla to honor those killed.
