Volunteers Needed To Help Honor Military Veterans

Associated Press

The Central Kentucky Veterans Committee is looking for volunteers to help place flags and honor veterans this Memorial Day. Army veteran Denny Hart said that the organization plans to place flags at the gravesites of 17,000 veterans buried at the Lexington Cemetery and at Camp Nelson National Cemetery in Nicholasville.

Along with helping to place flags, volunteers will be asked to read inscriptions on each headstone and take a moment to honor each one. Hart says it's not just about the flags, but about remembering each veteran. The group will place flags on May 25-28.
