Volunteers Needed to Help Replace Flags
The Salem Veterans Association announces a program to replace worn flags and damaged markers on graves of Salem’s veterans. They are looking for volunteers to help with this program.
“Between now and Memorial Day,” said Douglas Micklon, Association President, “replacements will be phased in. This means that some graves will temporarily be without flags and markers.” The Salem Veterans Association urges patience by loved ones who find graves without flags and markers during this phase-in period. The project will be completed prior to Memorial Day. Any group or individual interested in volunteering for this project should call Doug Micklon at 783-1038.
