Saluting the Fallen

A Young Marine salutes after placing an American flag on a veteran's grave in the National Memorial Cemetery in Phoenix, AZ, Saturday. 

Along with Firebird Young Marines, a Scout like organization, hundreds of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts came out to the cemetery this morning to place American flags on the graves in the cemetery. The cemetery covers 225 acres, but so many people came out this morning that it only took a little more than an hour for the volunteers to place a flag on every grave.
