GLEN CARBON, Ill. (KSDK) – Sunset Hill Cemetery paid homage to our fallen heroes with flags Monday.

More than 1,200 full-sized flags are lining Sunset Hill Cemetery in Glen Carbon. The flags once draped coffins of veterans who are buried at this cemetery.

Each flag has the name of a veteran who has died, and many flags were donated by their families.

A ceremony was held Monday morning and will be flown until 3 p.m.
