Photos: Watsonville observes Memorial Day

Above: American flags line a large swath of Freedom Boulevard Monday for Memorial Day. A crew headed up by VFW Post 1716 of Watsonville took on the task of flying hundreds of coffin flags between the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building on Freedom Boulevard to Martinelli Street. Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the U.S. for mourning its military personnel who died during the service in armed forces.

Below: A large UH1 helicopter, flown by Ryan Corey, carries an American flag over Watsonville Municipal Airport earlier today. The helicopter was carrying the flag back from Santa Cruz as part of a Memorial Day event.
