WAKE FOREST — Members of Post 8466, Veterans of Foreign Wars, replaced the missing flag decoration on veterans’ graves at the Wake Forest Cemetery Sept. 18. Members participating in the replacement activity are, from left, Jack Midyette, Dan Irons, Hank Pierwola, Al Hinton and Ariel Rosario.
American flags decorate veteran graves throughout the community as part of the Memorial Day celebration. However, the flags in the Wake Forest Cemetery came up missing recently and the VFW Post was asked to replace them.
A concerned citizen generously provided the funds to purchase the additional flags and the members replaced the flags.
