Honoring Western Mass Veterans with Flags During Pandemic

Every year just prior to Memorial Day, hundreds of volunteers participate in a flag placing ceremony at the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Agawam. This year, with social distancing restrictions in place, those volunteers were not able to participate.  

Instead, staff members pitched in, and over the span of two days marked every gravestone with an American flag. Producer Dave Fraser visited the cemetery last week as the flags were being placed and shares this story.
