EXETER, R.I. (AP) - State and federal officials will mark Memorial Day with a ceremony at the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Exeter.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY’-fee), the state’s congressional delegation and Maj. Gen. Kevin McBride, the Adjutant General of the Rhode Island National Guard, are among those who plan to attend the 11 a.m. ceremony on Monday.

Rear Admiral Walter E. “Ted” Carter, Jr., president of the U.S. Naval War College, will speak at the ceremony, and the Rhode Island National Guard’s 88th Army Band will provide the music.

Communities in Rhode Island are scheduling their own services and parades to mark the holiday.
