Although the weather will likely be less than optimal the annual Operation Flags for Vets event will go on at the National Cemetery in Bourne beginning Saturday morning.
The event, created by the family of Sergeant First Class Jared Monti, a Medal of Honor winner killed in Afghanistan in 2006.
Thousands of volunteers are expected to plant over 77,000 flags on the graves of those buried at the cemetery but more volunteers are always welcome.
The flags will be in place until Sunday June 6th and will be replaced in November for Veterans Day.
If you go, bring a screw driver to assist in the placement of the flags, the placements begin at 10:00 tomorrow morning.
