Letter: Please mark Crown Hill veterans' graves

May 17, 2013

We will be placing a new American flag on all veterans graves in Crown Hill Cemetery at or about 6 a.m. May 25 and then removing them on May 27 at about 6 p.m.

The following request is being made. Please mark the graves. We have requested in the past that you take a wood lathe or stick and place a piece of white cloth 12 to 20 inches standing at or close to the head stone.

The JROTC, Boy Scouts and church Sunday school classes will remove the marker and replace it with a new American flag. This has worked well the past two years.

Should we miss a grave, please call me at 660-620-1044 or 827-3044.
