The annual flagging of military stones in preparation for Memorial Day will also take place at this time, according to the release.  “We’ll have the flags; we know where to place them and you’ll provide the power to make it happen,” the release states.

“This community service activity is a great way to start Armed Forces Day and prepare for the Memorial Day holiday!  Please join us to honor those who have served our country”.
