Thousands of people will visit Riverside National Cemetery today for Memorial Day. They will lay flowers at gravesides, and honor military veterans. The cemetery is among the places depicted in "Wild Blue Yonder," a photo and oral history project from Riverside novelist Susan Straight.

From the California Report, Steven Cuevas says it celebrates the deep ties between the military and Inland Southern California.
