Flags for Vets

Sunday, May 26, 2019, 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Come volunteer with on the Sunday before Memorial Day to honor our veterans. This is a great family friendly opportunity to teach your children about our country and its history. The flag placement on Memorial Day Weekend is a special event and ceremony to honor each and every veteran buried at Houston National Cemetery. Each soldier has a flag placed in front of their tombstone and gets a salute and their name read out loud. This honorable opportunity allows volunteers to experience the true sacrifice our military veterans made for our country. Houston National Cemetery is the 2nd largest veterans' cemetery next to Arlington.
