Minnesotans are paying tribute Monday to those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country free.

Dozens of Memorial Day events were held across the state.

One of those events was the dedication of the new Honoring All Veterans Memorial in Richfield. It features granite tablets where the names of up to 7,200 service members can be etched.  The dedication was set to begin at 2 p.m. at Veterans Park.

Other ceremonies include a Memorial Day program at the Minnesota Veterans Homes in Minneapolis and Hastings, Mass at the Fort Snelling Chapel and a blessing of the headstones at Calvary Cemetery in St. Paul and Saint Mary's Cemetery in Minneapolis.
