Memorial Day Flag Event

 

Each year, LynchburgCAP is honored to help serve alongside Delegate Scott Garrett as we place small flags in the neighborhoods in our community. This is done ahead of the Memorial Day weekend to remind folks why we honor this holiday, and to hold dear the sacrifice our countrymen and women have made so that we enjoy the freedoms that we have.

This year LynchburgCAP placed flags in the Forest area in a newer subdivision of homes and condos. This group of folks in our community had not seen flags placed out before, and some were deeply touched by the gesture. One couple stopped to thank us profusely, and the occupant of the vehicle was a recipient of the Purple Heart medal himself!

While the day itself was hot, and the uniform was as well, our cadets rose to the challenge and completed this act of service with excellence. A small act of service can mean a great deal to those around us, so let us never pass up an opportunity to make our community and our nation a better place!
