2017 Memorial Day Annual Flag Placing

The Florida National Cemetery holds a Memorial Day service every year at the Florida National Cemetery located in Bushnell, FL. The ceremony commemorates the U.S. service members who are laid to rest at the cemetery. Thousands of family members, friends, loved ones and U.S. Representative Daniel Webster celebrated the nation’s fallen heroes. A huge part of the Memorial Day event was actually done on Sunday, May 27th before the ceremony. Over two thousand volunteers took part in the annual flag placing at the cemetery. During this event the volunteers from the surrounding communities came and placed an American flag at each of the over 100,000 service member’s gravesites and thanked them for their service and sacrifice for our country. A few employees of The City of Bushnell and their loved ones volunteered to show their support and appreciation for the great sacrifice that the service member had given. The employees consisted of Christina Simmons, Kellie Mason, Courtney Murphy, Denise Lee, and Kristin Ray. This is a long time tradition for the City of Bushnell employees as they take great pride in being able to give back to our veterans!
