ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Bay Pines National Cemetery needed help looking for volunteers to help place flags on all of their veteran gravesites, but it seems all spots have been filled.
More than 25,000 flags will need to be placed by this Sunday. The event is organized by the Flags for Fallen Vets.
Volunteers needed to register with them before this weekend. By Thursday morning, those who attempted to fill out an online application received the following message, "Volunteer Placement is Closed."
However, the organization is accepting volunteers to remove the flags on Saturday, June 4. If you're interested, you can sign up here or learn more about the organization by heading over to their website: www.flagsforfallenvets.com.
The flags will stay on display through Memorial Day and all of next week.
