The Houston National Cemetery is the only National Cemetery in Texas that does not place an individual flag on the grave site of each Veteran from Memorial Day and is 1 of only 13 nation wide that do not.
The goal of The Houston National Cemetery is to place 70,000+ flags on Sunday, May 26, 2013 where they will remain until Thursday, May 30.
We already have on board: GE Energy, Home Depot, HEB, and Halcon Resources as being sponsors of this event. However, 60% of the funding to purchase flags came from the community.
We encourage you to visit our website at www.flagsforfallenvets.com to see the work we are doing.
We only have until May 1st to raise all the funds to be able to receive all the flags in time.
Volunteers are also needed. Families are encouraged to volunteer.
