Avenue of Flags

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – Volunteers helped set up the Avenue of Flags at Orange Grove/Graceland cemetery on Broad St. Thursday morning.  782 flags that once draped the caskets of veterans are on display until 4 p.m.

It took the volunteers and Boy Scouts about an hour to put up the flags.  It'll take about an hour and a half to take them down.

The display is coordinated by the Sons of the American Revolution, and takes place on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

For more information on volunteering, or to donate a casket flag, call Ted Harless or Kevin Cooley at 337-437-7806.
