May 26, 2018-Flags for Vets, All Saints Cemetery

Each year the Des Plaines American Legion Post 36, the sons of the American Legion Squadron 36, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2992, JPC veterans and JPC volunteers honored our local deceased veterans by placing over 4000 flags at their headstones at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines.

Eleven members were present.  It was sunny but the ground was very hard so next year we bring battery drills, a string trimmer and leaf blower will be brought to the event.

JPC volunteers met at, and left from the Des Plaines McDonald’s at 8:45 AM for a short ride, led by George Gauss to All Saints Cemetery for the placing of the flags.
