Navy Commander Joe Cubba presented VFW Commander Bob Jones with a new flag to fly over the Alexandria National Cemetery on Saturday morning,

May 25. More than 100 scouts gathered with neighbors, family, friends and neighbors to retire the old flag and raise the new. Afterwards, those gathered set out to decorate each gravestone with a flag for Memorial Day weekend.
