The flags are flying at the Sallisaw Cemetery in preparation for the annual Memorial Day Service.
The service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday.
Bill Aydelott of American Legion Carnie Welch Post 27 in Sallisaw, which sponsors the service, said more flags will be put out for Memorial Day.
Joe Peters of Sallisaw, a U.S. Air Force veteran and graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., will be the guest speaker for this year’s service.
The service will begin with singing by the audience, Aydelott said. He explained the singing draws the attention of those visiting the cemetery for Memorial Day and visitors then gather at the gazebo where the service is held.
Melanie Drummond will perform a patriotic solo. The post's color guard will post the colors and Stanley Collins will lead the Flag Salute before the audience sings the Star Spangled Banner.
Dana Davis and Holly Bormann will perform patriotic solos, and Post Commander Mike Mowzakis will introduce Peters.
The service will conclude with the Salute to the Fallen, a 21-gun salute, and taps performed by a bugler.
