It was a somber ceremony outside Belleman's Church in Centre Township, Monday.
Many gathered to honor the men and women who gave their lives for the sake of freedom.
During the ceremony surviving veterans were also honored for their bravery and service.
"Well I think that's great that people come out and remember that sort of service," said veteran Bill Vogel.
"It's great to see so many people turning out. At least the people that are here understand what it meant to be in a country that's free," said veteran John Vogel.
Veterans also took a moment to fold the American flag 13 times, and each fold was special to everyone in attendance.
"It's just a chance to get out and say thanks to everybody who served from all the way back to civil war days, the revolutionary war, and all the way up to modern days, the guys who are overseas right now," said veteran Andrew Potts.
"People just forget what it's all about. And I think it's very important because freedom was never free," said Gladys Staab.
Many also remembered the military families.
"Having our husbands and wives away from our families, it's not easy for them, and it's not easy for us to have them away.
It's rough for everybody," said Angela Potts, wife of a veteran.
