National Cemetery Prepares for Memorial Day
With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, volunteers will help put out flags in the National Cemetery on Arsenal Island.
Weather permitting, flags will be placed on 32,000 graves Thursday afternoon.
Cemetery director, Scott Lamb, says each year between 500 and 800 people show up to place the flags. And with all that help it only takes about one hour.
Volunteers will also be needed on Tuesday morning to remove the flags.
