FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) -- Leaders of the 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley will honor fallen soldiers during Memorial Day observances at the northeast Kansas post.

Monday's event will include the laying of a wreath in honor of the soldiers buried at the cemetery near the main post complex.

Maj. Gen. Paul Funk, commander of the 1st Infantry Division, will be joined at the event by Command Sgt. Maj. Miguel Rivera, the senior enlisted soldier in the division and at Fort Riley.

Military installations across the country, including Fort Riley, will have a 21-gun salute at noon, followed by playing the National Anthem and raising the flag to full staff.

Fort Riley is home to about 18,000 soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division.
