BURLINGTON COUNTY, N.J. - People came out to pay tribute to our fallen heroes on Memorial Day while still practicing social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In Medford, 200 flags lined the Burlington County Field of Honor as cars drove by.

“I think it works really well as the drive-thru and so people can do it safely,” said Susan Miller, the president of the Medford Sunrise Rotary. “People don’t have to walk through the display like last year.” 

While the annual ceremony of reading off the names of local heroes couldn’t happen, the display took its place. 

“They have done a beautiful job with the memorials and it really gives you a chance to do some thinking and know why we are all celebrating this day. We thank our lucky stars every day for those men and women,” Miller said.
