Memorial Day Flagging slider

Founded in 1863, The Woodlawn Cemetery & Conservancy is the final resting place of more than 8,500 individuals who bravely served our nation in the U.S. Armed Forces. Woodlawn has honored veterans for years by recruiting volunteers, including school groups, scouts, corporate teams, and service organizations from the local community to salute America’s heroes.

Each year, to thank those who answered the call, volunteers place flags on veterans’ gravesites in the lead-up to Memorial Day. Volunteers receive maps that pinpoint locations and a list of known servicemembers. A Woodlawn tradition, the yearly public event attracts hundreds of volunteers who make it a point to honor the bravest among us.
