America's war dead were remembered at events across the Bay Area.

An annual Memorial Day vigil was held on Monday night in Contra Costa County, at the Lafayette crosses.

The monument began rising on a hill above Highway 24 in November 2006.

Scattered among the crosses are a few stars of David and Islamic crescents.
