For Air Force veteran Mike Cantell, this Memorial Day had even more significance. The Crowley man was remembering his son, Jason, who died Sept. 15 after a traumatic brain injury he suffered after being hit with an improvised explosive device (IED) in Baghdad, Iraq.

The 27-year-old Army staff sergeant is buried at Skyvue Memorial Gardens, which marked the holiday with its annual remembrance ceremony Monday.

“It’s a time to reflect on what we have and who sacrificed to give this to us,” Cantell said.
