Veterans' Flag Holders Fund

Veterans' Flag Holders Fund

The Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries offers individuals a meaningful way to honor our nation’s heroes - our veterans and war dead who have most earned their peaceful rest within America’s first National Historic Landmark Cemetery at Laurel Hill and at West Laurel Hill, which is on the register of National Historic Places.

Through our Veterans’ Flag Holders Fund, any person can memorialize - and rightly thank - veterans who served in our nation’s military; those who fought in any of our nation’s wars; and all of those who bravely sacrificed their lives for our nation’s freedom over the past two and a half centuries.

A donation of $35 ensures the placement of one aluminum Generic Veterans’ Flag Holder (for any American war) and $50 for one aluminum GAR Veterans’ Flag Holder (specific to the Civil War) upon a veteran gravesite of the sponsor’s choice. For a list of veterans in need of a Flag Holder, please call the cemetery office.

Flag holders can be purchased ONLINE or by downloading and mailing this FORM with a check to the address below:
