Soldiers Honored in Lansing

Michigan soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan will be honored here in Lansing Friday.

Sam's Club will host a silent auction Friday to raise money for a non profit group called "Lest They Be Forgotten.”

That group pays for memorials for soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Family members of soldiers killed are expected to attend the event as well as members of the local and state government, and heads of military.

The event is open to the public from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Sam's Club on Edgewood Boulevard.

The money raised goes towards memorials for fallen soldiers.
