BAINBRIDGE — During May 2023, The American Legion Slater-Silvernail Post 806 in Bainbridge, will be placing grave markers and flags on the graves of veterans resting in Greenlawn Cemetery, Bennettsville Cemetery, St. Peter’s Churchyard Cemetery, West Bainbridge Rural Cemetery, Bush Cemetery, Presbyterian Cemetery, and Prince Cemetery.
If you have a relative or friend who is a veteran of military service in the United States Armed Forces resting in one of the above cemeteries, and you would like a grave marker and flag to honor their service to our country placed by their gravestone, please call the American Legion representative at 607-967-8171. The representative will need the following information: the veteran's name, dates of active military service, cemetery where they are located, and their grave site number.
Post 806 will make every effort to see a marker and flag is placed on the grave this year and in years to come. The American Legion thanks Boy Scout Troop 52 for their help in this annual honor to our departed veterans, since we currently place over 500 flags each Memorial Day.
American Legion Post 806 also sells good quality 3x5' American flags as a Post fundraiser. Buying a flag from the American Legion Post benefits the community. If you would like to purchase a new flag call 607-967-8171.
