Awaiting the Waves

Copyrighted Photograph

The warm, welcoming light of sunrise strafes the rolling hills of Fort Logan National Cemetery and highlights a flag standing askew at a grave marker during the morning hours on Saturday, May 25, 2013. The flag wouldn't stay that way for long with over 400 volunteers making their way across the the 214 acres of the cemetery in waves to plant or fix flags at every grave marker at the cemetery just a couple hours later. Each grave site received one flag as a part of the Memorial Day weekend activities including a service on Monday. On Tuesday the flags will be picked up by volunteers and stored for the next event.

More photos on Monday.
