Volunteers invited to place flags at USAFA cemetery

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (KXRM) — The U.S. Air Force Academy is inviting members of the public to honor Air Force veterans for Memorial Day by placing American flags at the USAFA cemetery.

USAFA said volunteers can join academy staff on Saturday, May 24, to place more than 1,500 flags on veteran graves. Flags are placed every year to ensure each veteran is honored ahead of Memorial Day.

Flags will be provided by academy staff, and volunteers are not required to RSVP. USAFA said in the event of inclement weather, there will not be an alternate date, and academy staff will place the flags as soon as conditions allow.

Public access requirements and instructions are available online here.

The cemetery is located at 3026 Parade Loop Road, U.S. Air Force Academy. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Memorial Wall by 9:45 a.m.
