Memorial Day events on tap

Special to the PRESS

Area residents who wish to remember fallen military men and women are invited to take part in a number of events this coming week.

On Saturday, May 26, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8791 and the American Legion Post 498 invite the public and families of fallen military men and women to assist in placing flags on the graves and tombstones of servicemen and women at the City Cemetery located at Port Isabel. VFW Commander Robert Vela is asking those interested in assisting in the flag placing to meet on the 26th at the City Cemetery. Vela insists that it is vital for additional volunteers and especially family members of those who have fallen to assist so that as many veterans as possible are identified.
