WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - 2,500 flags were planted Tuesday morning at the Indiana Veteran's Home.

Around 15 volunteers from Duke Energy helped plant the flags.

They were planted as part of Duke's action month. It's a service campaign that allows employees to give back through volunteering.

The volunteers worked for more than an hour, planting flags across the entire cemetery.

Duke Energy of Lafayette manager Dan Rhodes said it's important to give back to those in the community, especially those who served.

"In light on memorial day coming up, that's on our mind. And so it was important for us to honor them and their sacrifice to our country," said Rhodes. "We just plan to continue supporting out here. It's important to us and the Veteran's Home is an important part of the community as well."

The flags will remain through Memorial Day Weekend.

Rhodes said Duke has plans to plant flags again for Veteran's Day.
