Although the temperature hovered in the mid 90s, there was a steady flow of families and friends pass through the Chattanooga National Cemetery on Sunday afternoon to remember those buried there.
The scouts placed over 50,000 small flags on each grave Saturday as is the tradition each Memorial Day. Decorating each grave with a flag is done only on Memorial Day. The flags will remain up until after the holiday.
A special service will be held Monday at 11 a.m. at the pavilion. Those attending should park at the National Guard Armory on Holtzclaw Avenue and ride the shuttle to the cemetery.
Among those buried at the cemetery are Luther Masingill, who was on WDEF radio every morning for over 70 years. Luther was proud to be part of the "Greatest Generation." Other graves are those of Rev. John S. Lanham, John J. Brown and Charles Freudenberg, who also served in WW2.
Special thanks to those who keep up the cemetery grounds, especially during this time when we remember those who gave their lives for our country.
