You may have seen a few funerals of veterans this year where there was no family to honor them. Then word gets out of this tragic circumstance and five hundred people show up to give respects.
At a veteran's funeral the flag draped coffin is a powerful symbol. The honor guard's ranking officer presents the folded flag to a family member. What about these lone sentries that have ended their watch? Who gets these flags? Who keeps them? Who preserves them? Who honors them?
