    Memorial Day Flag Placement Program

    Each year, hundreds of volunteers contribute to the success of the Memorial Day holiday programs at the Andersonville National Cemetery.

    The Memorial Day Flag Program begins Saturday morning and extends through the weekend so that we may properly honor the graves of our veterans. Over the four days of the holiday weekend, we rely on volunteers for assistance in the following four tasks:

    1. Placing flags at graves Saturday morning.
    2. Monitoring and straightening flags throughout the day Saturday through Monday (Flag Wardens).
    3. Assistance with the annual program on Sunday.
    4. Pickup of the flags from the National Cemetery on Tuesday.

    Registration information is made available at the beginning of each year.
