Heisler Park will be the setting of a Memorial Day celebration to honor veterans who have died. "It's a reminder of all the friends we lost, not only in combat but ever since then," said resident Jim Law, a 30-year Marine Corps veteran.

Bruce Thiesen, deputy secretary of operations for the California Department of Veterans Affairs, will be the featured speaker at the annual event.

Mayor Kathleen Blackburn is also scheduled to address the crowd.

The exhibition, sponsored by the American Legion, Laguna Beach Post 222 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars, begins at 10:30 a.m.

This year, the U.S. Department of Defense sent the Laguna Beach post a special flag to honor veterans who fought in the Korean War.
