OPERATION FLAGS FOR VETS November 10, 2012
Operation Flags for Vets will again be placing flags on the graves at the Massachusetts National Veterans Cemetery in Bourne, Massachusetts for Veterans Day. We are looking for volunteers to help with this worthy and solemn endeavor. People of all ages are welcomed to help in the placement of the 56,000 flags on the final resting place of our beloved veterans.
A short ceremony will be held at the flagpole at the end of the Avenue of Flags at 10 AM followed by the actual placement of the flags. Please bring a long-shanked screwdriver with you to aid in making starter holes for the flags. Also, please do not begin planting flags before the end of the ceremony. Flag removal will take place on Sunday November 18 at 10 AM.
Operation Flags for Vets is a program of the SFC Jared C. Monti Charitable Foundation established in memory of Medal of Honor recipient SFC Jared C. Monti; KIA Afghanistan 6-21-06. Donations to our foundation may be mailed to Paul Monti 408 Center Street Raynham, MA 02767
