State Veterans Cemeteries 

Small American Flags were placed on the graves of veterans in State Veterans Cemeteries thanks to the “Flag Fund.”The American Legion Department of Maine Commander, Andy Olson presented Major General John W. Libby, Commissioner of the Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management with a check for more than 16 hundred dollars at a ceremony on the 25th.The flags purchased with this money were placed beginning at the Civic Center Drive Cemetery and then at the Mount Vernon Road Cemetery. The American Legion in Maine has been raising money to purchase the flags for display on Memorial Day for the last several years.
