Memorial Day Flag Project

The Sons of the American Legion have placed American flags beside the graves of Anderson County veterans at Lawrenceburg Cemetery for Memorial Day since 2004.
This is the 1st year that the SAL has done this, and all of the graves with military markers are covered, however we are certain there are several veterans that do not have military markers. If your family member's (past or present), friend or other loved one's grave was not marked please submit name and cemetery section they rest in to the Anderson County SAL to be included in the future.
