Join G4G DFW as we return to the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery for Memorial Day. Put on your comfy clothes and come out to help support our fallen veteran heroes by placing American flags at their headstones and then removing the flags the following weekend. Volunteers can sign up for one or both shifts. A separate email will be sent for registration details with the Flags for Fallen Vets portal.

Time: 9am–11am (requested arrival time 8:30am)

Parking is limited at the DFW National Cemetery. You will only be allowed to park on one side of the road. Park near sections 10 and 11 on Lone Star Circle or the Committal Shelter C area and do not block any roads.

Important note: We encourage everyone to arrive no later than 8:30am (coffee and snacks provided).

What to bring: A ruler to measure 12″ from the headstones (paint stir sticks work well, too!) and a screwdriver or something sturdy for pilot holes to sink flags 5″ into the ground (please make sure to mark them for 5″).  Rain gear (if the weather requires it) and water if you’d like.

All ages are welcome.

About Our Partner: Flags for Fallen Vets was established on May 14th, 2012 for the purpose of ensuring an American flag is placed upon every veterans grave site at each National Cemetery in the country for Memorial Day. There are close to 800,000 interred American Veterans across the country that are not given this Hallowed Honor.
