Every year hundreds of flags are placed on the headstones of fallen military members that have been laid to rest in the Rock Island Arsenal National Cemetery. Volunteers are need to putting the flags out and for picking them back up following Memorial Day.

If you want to help out, head out to the Arsenal this Thursday, May 24th, before 4 P.M. You'll want to arrive pretty early, because the turn out is usually pretty high. In case of severe weather, the placement will be on Friday at the same time.

For more information call 309-782-2094 or check out the event page on Facebook.
