March 16, 2011 – Sulphur VFW and American Legion
By John Bridges - bio | email SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - military veterans in Sulphur are making preparations for what they hope will one day turn into a patriotic tradition in their city. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion are starting a flag display at Roselawn Cemetery at Highway 27 and Interstate 10.
"We started out with just a dozen flags," said VFW Post 8107 Commander Jack Havens. "It's grown to about fifty now."
Borrowing from the huge success of the Avenue of Flags in Lake Charles, the City of Sulphur wants to start their own tradition at Roselawn.
"These are casket flags given to veterans placed on their caskets. There are some that had been on the shelf for 34 years."
Veterans are hoping that Sulphur residents will donate their veteran's casket flags for display on Memorial and Veterans Days as well as Flag Day and the 4th of July.
"On patriotic holidays, we put out these flags," said VFW member Crawford Swier. "We put out grave flags to all veterans what are buried here."
If you'd like to donate a casket flag, you can call Havens at the Sulphur VFW: 337-528-2907.
