May 21, 2020: Soldiers from the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) place U.S. flags at headstones as part of Flags-In at Arlington National Cemetery. For more than 50 years, soldiers from The Old Guard have honored our nation’s fallen military heroes by placing U.S. flags at gravesites of service members buried at both Arlington National Cemetery and the U.S. Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery just prior to the Memorial Day weekend. Over 1,000 soldiers place over 250,000 flags in front of every headstone, and columbarium and niche wall column.
