The National World War I Museum and Memorial is hosting a weekend of events and displays. For some veterans who have lost colleagues, it's a somber time.

Many Kansas City-area residents, including military veterans, attended Memorial Day weekend events at Union Station and the National World War I Museum and Memorial.

On Sunday, Korean War veteran David Degois was among those who visited the memorial and reflected on the costs of war.

"Memorial Day, to me, is to remember my colleagues who fell in the field," Degois said. "Some people don't believe what the serviceman been through."
