Siouxland groups mark 2500 veteran graves with flags for Memorial Day

Flags set to honor veterans

Now thanks to help from Holy Sepulchre, they place flags at each of the more than 5,500 gravesites of veterans.

Memorial Day programs at local cemeteries this weekend will pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the freedoms the nation enjoys today.

Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery is looking for volunteers to help with a Memorial Day tradition: decorating the graves of our veterans with American flags.

They planted 450 flags on veteran graves at Rosewood Cemetery in Longview. "It is also a time to remember all veterans who are no longer with us".

The Brook Park American Legion Post 610 Parade will be held on Monday in Brook Park.

Thomas Bagley, Sea Cadet, Petty Officer 2nd Class says, "I think it's important to honor the past military members, being a sea cadet, because they're really the ones who make me want to join". The gravesite flags will be displayed through Memorial Day. The cemetery is located next to the Fayette County Board of Education building on Ga.

Those attending are encouraged to arrive early to facilitate parking. Women Veterans of Southwest Missouri Post 1214 is putting on the Memorial Day ceremony here this year, and they were also in charge of making sure the approximately 15,000 flags we're put in place before the holiday.
