WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Indiana Veterans Home in West Lafayette is looking ready for Memorial Day thanks to the help of volunteers.
Over 100 volunteers placed flags on the more than 2,400 graves at the Veterans Home Thursday.
Some of the groups included the members of the Harrison High School football team, the Civil Air Patrol and the Arconic Veterans Group.
Retired Air Force Colonel and event organizer, Tim Cahoon, said he is honored to see young people and fellow veterans helping place flags.
"To come out and honor our veterans in this manner and give their time and to reflect on what that veteran's service may have meant, it just means the world to me really," said Cahoon.
Volunteers are welcome to show up and place flags at the Tippecanoe Memory Gardens and Springvale Cemetery at nine O'clock Saturday morning. Flag placing will also take place at Greenbush Cemetery starting at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
