Flags placed on graves

 May 26, 2008

Thomasville-- Veterans of various foreign wars were represented at the ceremony at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

This year they opted out of having a guest speaker, but instead explained the significance of each fold in an American flag.

Veteran Larry Owens said they hold the ceremony every year.  "Never leave and never forget a soldier. The ones of us that are still here, part of our duty is not to forget," said Owens.

Volunteers helped the Thomas county veterans council place 3,000 flags on veteran's graves in several area cemeteries.
