Memorial Flags, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Dylan counted out the one hundred flags they would need for their section. While he did that, Sam looked over the printed sheets of names.
 
2     "Wow," he said, "there sure are a lot of soldiers buried here."
 
3     "You're right," said Dylan. "There, I'm done counting. If you can take one bag of flags, I'll take the other."
 
4     It took ten minutes of brisk walking for the two boys to cross to the far corner of the cemetery where their job began. Dylan called out the names of the servicemen on the headstones. Sam checked them off the list when the memorial flag was put in place.
 
5     The two boys moved quickly and methodically down the long rows, looking for the men who had died serving their country during World War II. A first, the servicemen were in family groups. There were even some from other wars, and the boys went ahead and put flags on those, noting the names as they did so. Eventually they came to a section that was dedicated to just servicemen. They had been killed during World War II and had been brought home for burial.
