Decoration Days

American Legion Post 39 is honored to again furnish flags to honor veterans who are buried in the cemeteries in Marshall County. It has been the tradition of this post, with the assistance of VFW Post 5109, to provide this service.

If you take care of the flags for one or more cemeteries, please call 359-7545 or 637-4311. If there is no answer, please leave a detailed message, including the number of flags needed. Someone will contact you to arrange delivery of the flags.

Volunteers are needed to place flags at Middleview, Liggett and Allen Cemeteries. If you can help, please let us know how many flags are needed.
