(Fallen Soldiers remembered around the county)…Memorial Day Services were held all over the county Monday.
Since the Civil War, Memorial Day is set aside to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in battle. Services were held at Riverview Cemetery in Brawley, at Evergreen in El Centro, Mountain View Cemetery in Calexico and Memory Gardens near Imperial. The Elk’s Lodge in El Centro held their annual ceremony in downtown El Centro. During that event a folded flag was presented to Patrick and Kathryn Pace, in memory of their son Captain Scott Pace, a helicopter pilot who died June 6, 2012 in Afghanistan. The Brawley native was 33 years old at the time of his death.
