MANITOWOC - People on the Lakeshore spent Saturday honoring veterans this Memorial Day weekend.
Folks gathered at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc as part of the remembrance.
It's a day meant to honor veterans, crews and builders of the 28 World War II submarines constructed in Manitowoc.
The ceremony took place aboard the USS Cobia, a submarine that's docked at the museum.
It included a wreath laying ceremony and a 21 gun salute.
Folks also paid tribute to those who served aboard the four submarines built in Manitowoc that were lost in World War II including the USS Lagarto.
"The importance of today is to remember not only those submariners who perished in World War II, but of course all of the fallen who've put themselves in peril for our sake and continue to do so even today," said Norma Bishop with the Wisconsin Maritime Museum.
Names of the men who were on board the submarine were also read as part of the ceremony.
