Honoring Those Who Sacrificed Everything For Our Freedom


Honoring Those Who Sacrificed Everything For Our Freedom

LASD would like to honor and pay respect to the men & women of our Armed Forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts from all around the Southland participated in the “flag-in” ceremony at the Los Angeles National Cemetery. They paid tribute to each service man and women by planting a flag in front of the grave, reading each service members name aloud while saluting the headstone, and thanking them for their service. More than 88K flags were put in place. This ceremony took place at 136 cemeteries nationwide.
