On Monday "Victory for Veterans" group members will place flowers at most grave sites at the veteran's cemetery.

For others like John Colwell, who served in Vietnam and buried his parents at the Santa Fe National Cemetery, Memorial Day weekend is especially emotional.

Early Monday morning, flags will be placed at veterans' graves at Laurel Hill Cemetery and Peaceful Rest Cemetery.

On Memorial Day this year, 230,000 American flags will mark the graves of fallen military personnel at Arlington National Cemetery. "They deserve to be remembered and appreciated", he commented.

"I think this is really important we are really honoring the lives of those who have sacrificed for our country", says Joy Pierce. About 50 of them date back to the Civil War era. The public is encouraged to attend.

One by one, American flags decorated the Roseville cemetery just in time for Memorial Day. Women Veterans of Southwest Missouri Post 1214 is putting on the Memorial Day ceremony here this year, and they were also in charge of making sure the approximately 15,000 flags we're put in place before the holiday.

These small flags will adorn individual gravesites at the cemetery, located at 1520 Harry Wurzbach Road in San Antonio. We're here, we're honoring them.
