2023 Memorial Day Flag Placement
May 27 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PMFree
Saturday, May 27, 2023 at 9:30 AM EST – 1 PM EST
Operation: Flags for Vets will again be honoring our beloved veterans by placing over 77,000 flags at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne for Memorial Day on Saturday, May 27.
Those wishing to place a single flag at a loved one’s gravesite will be allowed to do so.
Please place flags behind the grave markers, center of marker, in the sod 3″ deep. Bring long-handled screwdrivers to make starter holes.
We will need about a dozen pickup trucks to help deliver totes of flags to each of the sections. If you can help, please arrive at the cemetery by 8 AM to receive your assignments.
