In memory

Twelve-year-old Daniel Martin places an American flag on the grave of a soldier buried at Vicksburg National Cemetery this morning. Daniel and other children helped his father, park operations chief Rick Martin, put out 17,000 flags for the National Park Service to fly during the Memorial Day weekend. The cemetery is just west of the Vicksburg National Military Park.(Jon Giffin The Vicksburg Post)
