Clifton Guy, a Camp Nelson National Cemetery employee, placed American flags in front of tombstones on May 27, 1982, in preparation for Memorial Day ceremonies on May 31. It took four workers about two days to place the nearly 7,000 flags. This year’s services at Camp Nelson are scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Monday. Photo by Charles Bertram | Staff
