On May 22nd local residents, scout groups, the American Legion Post 68 arrived at Spanish Fork Cemetery to serve those that have served us. As one walked through the area a peaceful feeling could be felt as remembering those who died for us, is a noble task. James Meason, (WWII, US Navy) with the American Legion said, “It’s kind of nostalgic to walk through [the flags] and see your friends names. I used to see and associate with all the time.”
Another local resident, Michele Brown, stated “I was in the army. This really needs to be done. Its heart warming to see so many people come out and set these crosses and flags up.”
In 1987 there were about 180 crosses, today there are over 1600. Shall we renounce war and proclaim peace?
Serve Daily would like to thank all the men and women who uphold The Constitution of the USA. May we work to maintain our individual freedom through having responsibility and promoting true liberty.
Volunteers at Spanish Fork Cemetery set up 1600+ crosses with flags and poppies honoring those who served.
