Memorial Day is a day for honoring the heroes who courageously fought to keep our lands free. The Saturday before Memorial Day, hundreds of volunteers meet at the Biloxi Veterans Cemetery to decorate the cemetery with a beautiful display of flags. We have been participating in this meaningful event for many years. My husband's father and sister are buried at this cemetery as well as my aunt and uncle. It is a special privilege to place a flag at their grave. It is also a loving tribute to our soldiers and loved ones. If you have a similar activity near you, I urge you to join this year in honoring the heroes in your community.
