Vicksburg National Military Park is seeking volunteers to help place flags at each headstone in the National Cemetery in honor of Memorial Day. Work will begin on May 25th at 7:30 am at the cemetery and continue until each headstone has a flag accompanying it. Volunteers do not need to preregister and may come and go as they are available, but all volunteers will be required to sign a volunteer agreement. Volunteers will also be needed to monitor flags throughout the weekend. On May 29th volunteers will be needed to pick up the flags. This project will also begin at 7:30 am.
