BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -
In the spirit of remembrance this Memorial Day weekend, groups across the nation placed flags a grave sites today.
Youth groups and others, who wanted to participate, placed flags on graves at the Bakersfield National Cemetery.
It’s a way to honor those in military service who protect this country.
It’s also a way to remember those members of the armed forced who have passed.
Some families believe even the presence of the cemetery has a powerful meaning.
