Just ahead of Memorial Day, the Georgia Department of Defense held a Memorial Day observance ceremony.

National Guardsmen were joined by military families and members of the public at The Clay National Guard Center Memorial Wall in Marietta Thursday morning.

The bronze plaques honor service members who've lost their lives in overseas operations since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Memorial Day is observed Monday.
