Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - This Veterans Day, the San Diego Chapter of Veterans for Peace remembered fallen service members by putting up an "Arlington West" memorial near the USS Midway Museum.

Volunteers set up nearly 300 headstones and flags in this grassy area across the street from the Midway, representing Southern California veterans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It's a vivid reminder of the sacrifices veterans to defend our country.

Veterans for Peace have set up this "Arlington West" memorial on Veterans Day for the past several years.
