As part of this year’s 31 Day Salute, Fayetteville’s month-long salute to soldiers, veterans and their families, The Army’s Army will be placing over 2000 flags at the entrances of thirteen cemeteries in and around Cumberland County. Recurring annually on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, this event allows the community to come together and say thank you to its veterans, as well as those heroes no longer with us.
Memorial Day is an important day in Cumberland County and, as a sanctuary community for soldiers, veterans and their families, it is important for us to take the time to honor the sacrifices of our military heroes. As in previous years, this year we are lucky to have many Army’s Army members volunteering to help with this special tribute.
The Memorial Day flag placements will begin at LaFayette Memorial Park on Friday, May 24 at 11 A.M.
