BOISE -- Memorial Day Saturday meant Idaho military veterans out enjoying Zoo Boise.

The veterans came to the zoo as a part of many Memorial Day activities.

Those with the Idaho State Veteran's Home say it's important for our vets to get out in the community, meet folks and enjoy the weekend.

People kind of know that they are here, said Neva Surarez from the Idaho State Veterans Home. It's important that they get out and get some fresh air, and come to look at the animals at the zoo. And just, still be involved in things that go on.

The vets weekend will continue with a celebration coming up on Monday at the Veterans Cemetary in Boise.
