A bagpiper plays "Amazing Grace" as participants in the Memorial Day ceremony at the Yokohama War Cemetery in Hodogaya, Japan, lay flowers and wreaths at the cemetery's Cremation Memorial, which houses an urn containing the ashes of 335 Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen from the U.S., the Commonwealth and the Netherlands who died as prisoners of war in Japan. A bugler, in the background, played taps near the end of the ceremony.
