Flags Honor Fallen Vets At DFW National Cemetery Thanks To Volunteers
Memorial Day isn’t just about barbecue and the start of summer. It’s the day we remember we remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. An organization called Flags For Fallen Vets gathered to place flags at every headstone at the DFW National Cemetery, and it’s all thanks to more than a thousand volunteers.
DFW National Cemetery is the final resting place of about 34,000 servicemen and women. In previous years, the cemetery lined an avenue with flags, but this is the first year that each of the 28,000 headstones in the cemetery had a flag placed beside it.
Bob Fussner is the Marine veteran responsible for organizing the flag-laying effort through Flags For Fallen Vets. They plan to repeat the flag tribute on Veterans Day at the national cemeteries in both Dallas and Houston. For now, those beautiful 28,000 flags will remain in place through Wednesday.
If you wish to volunteer in gathering the flags, contact Flags For Fallen Vets through the information posted on their public Facebook page.
