Flags In: Memorial Day Tradition At Arlington National Cemetery (Video)

Each year "Flags In" takes place at Arlington National Cemetery ahead of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The 3rd Infantry Regiment, also known as the Army's "Old Guard," places American flags on each of the 260,000 gravestones at the cemetery.

The Pentagon Channel has video of this year's "Flags In":

1. We are calling on all Mayoral candidates including Congressman Bob Filner (Federal), Assemblyman Fletcher (State), Dumanis (County), and Councilman DeMaio (City) to solve our Veterans Homelessness problem this Memorial Day weekend through bi-partisan cooperation and leadership.

Congressman Bob Filner knows how to bring new streams of Federal funding into San Diego. Including the new GI Bill so returning Veterans can go to college, and VASH vouchers to end Veterans Homelessness nation-wide by 2015.

The HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program combines Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance for homeless Veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA provides these services for participating Veterans at VA medical centers (VAMCs) and community-based outreach clinics.
