Flag Placement for Memorial Day 2022


The VFW and other Veterans and Veterans Organizations are organizing this year’s Flag Placement for Memorial Day at Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville, Alabama. The tradition of placing flags on the graves of Veterans offers an opportunity for local volunteers to show their respect for those who served our Country.

We encourage our Semper Fi Community Task Force volunteers and anyone in the community to join the team on Saturday, May 21st. Please see the details below, and contact one of the listed POCs if you have any questions.

What to bring: Bring something to make a hole in the ground to place the flag – an old tire iron or large screwdriver.
