CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The crowd looked a little different today at the city's annual Memorial Day ceremony.

A bugler playing "Taps" set the appropriate tone as members of the community gathered at Sherrill Park this morning.

Face masks and a smaller crowd were signs of how the pandemic has affected these kinds of public events.

Although the crowd wasn't as large as years past, the pride and gratitude for those who died for their country was not diminished.
