We thank all of the organizations that place the flags on veteran’s graves for Memorial Day!

The volunteers that place the flags on graves do this as a community service to honor the veteran’s. Flags are not placed on graves by cemetery staff.

Occasionally a veteran’s grave is missed. The cemetery is given a small supply of flags in case this happens.

Should a grave of a loved one be missed please contact Veteran’s Services in Boston to be placed on their list.

Veteran’s Services phone number is 617-635-3507.
