Veteran Flag Placement
For many years very dedicated organizations have been placing veteran flags at the gravesites of veterans for Memorial Day in our parish cemeteries. Unfortunately, due to this unprecedented time with COVID-19 CPCA has been notified by some of the organizations that they may not be able to place the veteran flags this year.
CPCA has placed veteran flags and flag holders at each of our Regional Offices. They are available for family members to pick up and place on their loved ones gravesite.
If you would like to pick up a flag please stop at one our offices to pick up. If you are in need of a flag holder please contact our office and they will locate the holder you need and let you know when it is ready for pick-up.
