Groups Head To Wayne County Cemeteries For “Flags In” Operation (PHOTO GALLERY)

Volunteers and members of American Legion Post 11 were out placing flags on veterans’ graves throughout Wayne County on Saturday morning.  The crowd gathered at Post 11 before splitting up and heading to several cemeteries in the county.  A large group, including volunteers from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, merged on Wayne Memorial Park for the “Flags In” operation.  One young woman from Post 58 in Clayton volunteered her time to help honor our fallen heroes.  Elsewhere, in Mount Olive, members of VFW Post 9959 and volunteers placed flags in Maplewood Cemetery next to the Myrtle Grove Cemetery, which is the oldest cemetery in Mount Olive.
