This Memorial Day weekend in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces volunteers joined other local service groups to honor our fallen military members by placing flags at the gravesites at DFW National Cemetery. Over 900 volunteers total showed up to the cemetery on the early morning of Sunday, May 27, to take part in this tremendous tribute.
The Red Cross team, made up of civilians, veterans, such as Harry Friedrich, and servicemen and women, like Captain Matthews, took moments of gratitude and honor at each spot where a person who gave his or her life for our freedom was laid to rest. An American flag was then placed in memory of each precious life given for our country.
