Historyland Memorial Park on US 301 in King George has been the proud custodian of flags that were draped on caskets of military service members at the time of burial.
At one time the cemetery had a ring of flag poles where those flags were flown on Memorial Day. Unfortunately, during the time that the memorial park was operated as Meadow-Brooke Memorial Gardens the flag poles were cut down. Historyland no longer has a means to fly these flags.
We would like to return the flags to the owners but unfortunately in some cases we do not current contact information for the family members. The cemetery’s records in many cases go back to the days when the community did not have 911 addresses. The records show route and box numbers, not street addresses.
Below is a list of the names on the flags. We would like to hear from owners of the flags - the family members of those service members whose names are on the flags.
Please contact Susan Muse at (540) 775-7733 or Lorene Rich at (804)761-6887 if you can help us to find a home for these flags.
