I did not have a ticket for the event. I got the email late last night while I was working at UTDallas. We got flags and learned how to put a flag 4 inches into the ground above the grave and a foot away from the headstone, and one of the most important things, to thank those who have served.
I saluted someone I did not know, his grave site, and I repeated the names of the fallen.
For those who are unfamiliar with Memorial Day versus Veterans Day, Memorial Day is for those who have served that died while they were serving.
