Hundreds of people gathered in the steady rain at Fort Snelling National Cemetery for the annual Memorial Day observance. The state’s largest military cemetery is home to 180,000 graves dating back to the Civil War. Gov. Tim Walz, himself a veteran, noted that the ceremony comes just before celebrations marking the 75th anniversary of the landings on D-Day.
