Annual Memorial / Veteran’s Day Flag Project
Memorial Day is the day we honor our Fallen Heroes and Veteran’s Day is the day we honor all military veterans, Honoring Our Fallen is working collaboratively with Anaheim Police Association, Orange County Coalition of Police & Sheriffs (OC Cops) and the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), and many local donors and volunteers to honor more than 200,000 Heroes with flags in their honor this year.Honoring Our Fallen seeks volunteers to assist in purchasing and placing flags out on gravesites at Riverside National Cemetery for Memorial Day.
Riverside National Cemetery is the only national cemetery in the Southern California area that has no organized effort to do this. The sheer size of the cemetery (200,000+ gravesites) makes it virtually impossible for the cemetery to fund such a program. The public is welcome to participate in placing flags out on gravesites for Memorial Day; however, the cemetery requires it to be done at the volunteer’s sole expense. Sadly, because of this, at least half of the gravesites are left empty each year.
Your generous gifts help each and every gravesite proudly display an 8” x 12” US flag:
- $100 gift will purchase 200 flags
- $250 gift will purchase 500 flags
- $500 gift will purchase 1000 flags
- $1000 gift will purchase 2000 flags
Our service members have dedicated their lives to protecting this great country we live in. Your gift will have a significant impact on helping us to honor these men and women this Memorial Day by placing a flag on their gravesite. Thank you for partnering with us to show support for our service members, past and present!
