FLAG PLACEMENT – 2021
CALVERTON NATIONAL CEMETERY
Greetings Organization Leaders and Family Members –
Thank you for returning your Calverton Flag Placement Participation Form to me.
I wanted to write to you, in advance of the event, with a status update. This pandemic year has caused a lot of re-adjustments to be made to our events; this flag placing event will be no different.
The National Cemetery Administration of the VA has issued the guidelines to all the national cemeteries under their jurisdiction for Memorial Day weekend events. The Director of Calverton National Cemetery has passed these guidelines to me so that all of the volunteers are informed. These protocols will only apply to the event this year; next year’s gravesite flag placement should be back to a more “normal” event, like we have been doing since 1995.
You will not be crazy about these changes and I do understand that.
