BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Mayor Menino and other guests gathered Sunday to honor veterans on this Memorial Day weekend.

Flags have been placed on the gravesites of 12,000 veterans that are buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery.

Mayor Tom Menino reminded those in attendance at the ceremony about the true meaning of this weekend.

“This weekend isn’t just about going to the Cape or having barbecues, it’s about paying tribute to our country’s heroes and their families,” said Menino. “We’re reminded of the true meaning of courage, sacrifice and service.”
