The Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery 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.
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 $25 ensures the placement of one aluminum Generic Veterans’ Flag Holder (for any American war) and $35 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 veteran’s in need of a Flag Holder, please call the cemetery office.
