Donations Let Little River-Academy VFD Place More Flags on Vets' Graves

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- After a flood of donations, a local fire department stepped up its program to place flags on veterans' graves.

The Little River-Academy Volunteer Fire Department has been planting American flags on graves at lesser-known cemeteries around Bell County for the past several years.

After hundreds were stolen from grave sites following their Memorial Day rounds, people around the area stepped up and donated money and flags.

Thanks to them, for the 4th of July, the firefighters are able to cover more of the veteran grave sites, and even added five new cemeteries to their list, bringing their total to nine.

If you’d like to donate to help them keep up their tradition, mail to: P.O. Box 531, Little River, TX 76554, or call 254-982-4251.
