Yesterday was Memorial Day and many of us visited cemeteries to honor the graves of military veterans who served our country or who died while serving our country. Their grave sites are easily recognizable with their metal flag holders, holding new American flags that were recently placed by the local American Legion or VFW.
Today, a close look at these metal flag holders for the major American Wars, most photographed in local cemeteries.
