Riverside National Cemetery’s event, “A Flag For Every Hero,” took place, Friday November 10th, in preparation for Veterans Day on Saturday, November 11th. Flags were placed by volunteers on more than 225,000 gravesites.
Marco Arcadia, Vice President and Relationship Manager at Community Bank’s Corona branch location, served in the United States Marine Corps and helped to place flags at the event. This was his 4th year.
“This day and event are very close to me, since I have a few brothers in arms who are buried there. It serves as a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by our past and present Veterans, as well as honor Veterans who have given their lives and continue to fight for our freedom,” said Marco.
“It was an amazing scene at the Riverside National Cemetery to see the transformation of having a flag placed over every gravesite within a couple hours.”
Community Bank thanks all of our Veterans for their service, both past and present.
