Thanks George, The difference is the flags they mentioned in this article were mostly placed in Military Cemeteries with a flag holder. Our case is somewhat different as we go to a lot of old family cemeteries that are out in the middle of nowhere. Sometimes the only marker there, will be a slab on top of the grave. We also go to a lot of rural Churches, sometime there is a VA marker but most of the time it is just an old civilian marker. None of the graves we place flags at have a flag holder, so we have to put them in the ground. And sometimes we cannot even get a flag in the ground within 5 feet of the marker, because of rocks or a slab underneath the surface.
I Googled "Flag Placement on Veterans Graves, and found a couple of different answers. Some even show the flag placed at the right corner of the marker, military marker. at a 45 degree angle pointing away from the marker.
I will try to contact the SCV and our Georgia Division for some answers, but as I said, we face several different situations as we go to the various cemeteries, some we cannot even find because the roads have changed in the last 100+ years. Finally we put the flags out the first week of April and go back and pick them up the last week of April or first week in May.
Thanks for your help.
