After placing your flower at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, please make your way to one of the flower distribution points marked in the map. You will receive a tote bag with flowers to place at a designated section. Memorial Day Flowers volunteers will give you a wooden coin marked with a section number. Please head over to this section for the flower tribute.
The Memorial Day Flowers Tribute
We ask our volunteers to place the flower on the grass before the headstone, quietly read the inscription, and say a few words of thanks to the interred for their service.
